    Titanic Belfast

    I would say the most important attraction you cannot miss in the city is the Titanic Belfast. It is actually an interactive centre dedicated to the world famous Titanic ship which was built here, in Belfast. There are also collections housed in the building dedicated to the city’s maritime past.
    Opened in 2012, the recent visitor attraction of Belfast is becoming more and more famous. Only in its first year it attracted more than 800.000 visitors. The interpretative and interactive galleries include the “The Launch”, “The Shipyard”, “The Maiden Voyage”, “The Sinking” and so on. It is an absolutely unique experience.

    St. George’s Market

    Do you love to wander around in markets? St. George’s Market is with no doubt one of the most exciting shopping experiences in the UK. It is considered the oldest attraction of the city. The origins of the market go back in the early 17th century.

    The actual market is extremely popular among both local people and visitors. Housed within a wonderful Victorian building, the fresh products and delicacies of the Friday and Saturday Markets made this place an important visitor attraction, too.

    Belfast Castle

    The astonishing Belfast Castle is undoubtedly one of the top 5 landmarks of the city. The castle dates from the 19th century and it is considered a true architectural jewel of Belfast. I think you cannot miss a visit. Besides being an important visitor attraction, it also offers wedding rooms, conference rooms and halls for different events. There is also a Cellar Restaurant and a souvenir shop in the building.

    Oh Yeah Music Centre

    One of the top sights of Belfast, the Oh Yeah Music Centre is a huge venue situated in the center of the Cathedral Quarter. With three floors, the venue is extremely popular among both locals and visitors, especially the young ones. There are innumerable performers invited to the Oh Yeah Music Centre.

    The Giant’s Causeway

    Although it is not situated inside the city, the Giant’s Causeway is also considered an attraction of Belfast. Situated only about an hour and a half of drive from the city, this natural wonder is undoubtedly one of the top sights in Northern Ireland. The unique site includes thousands of connected basalt columns. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is a wonderful attraction. It is worth making the way to it.
