A seamless blend of modernity and tradition, Belfast is known for its meteoric rise as a favored tourist hotspot over the past few years. A famous port city, Belfast today is sought after for its elegant Victorian landmarks, glitzy waterfront attractions, and fabulous gastronomic experiences. A trip to this sprawling metropolis is incomplete without a visit to the awe-inspiring Titanic Belfast, an iconic reminder of the city’s maritime heritage and the ill-fated liner. The marvelous Ulster Museum with its expansive collection of world art, and Belfast City Hall with its exquisite stained glass windows, are a must visit for your fix of history. Nearby, the execution chamber and flogging room at Crumlin Road Gaol, known as one of the haunted sites in the city, make for a fun visit although not for the faint of heart! Weekend mornings are best spent at the renovated Saint George’s Market – a foodie’s delight offering mouthwatering specialties ranging from Ulster fry to Belfast soda bread and yummy fudge. Experience the outdoors at Cave Hill Country Park, with a cliff that inspired Jonathan’s Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, numerous walking trails, and a spectacular castle and fort.
