A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Thu): get engrossed in the history at HMS Caroline, examine the collection at Titanic Belfast, then see the interesting displays at SS Nomadic, and finally steep yourself in history at Crumlin Road Gaol. Here are some ideas for day two: get a sense of history and politics at City Hall, learn more about the world around you at Ulster Museum, then get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Belfast Cathedral - The Cathedral Church of St. Anne.
