Explore a CGI world through various 'hotspots' in the app and learn more about Belfast:

  • The Troubles
    Belfast’s famous peace walls separate the city’s nationalist and loyalist communities where they come within touching distance of each other. The walls were necessary lines of defence during the conflict known as The Troubles. Northern Ireland has moved on since then and is now an internationally respected example of how lasting peace and reconciliation are possible.

  • Titanic
    The world’s most famous ship, RMS Titanic was built in Belfast over 100 years ago and, at the time of her launch, she was the largest man-made object on the planet.

  • Game of Thrones
    The world-renowned HBO Game of Thrones TV series is filmed in Belfast’s Titanic Studios and if you head south out of the city, you’ll discover the filming locations for Winterfell, Robb Starck’s Camp and The Haunted Forest. Journey north and you can explore The King’s Road or perhaps even experience a cliff-edge drama on The Iron Islands.

  • Belfast’s People
    It’s the ordinary people of Belfast that give the city its unique character. These are the witty, chatty and friendly locals, each keen to share their story.
