Now that we’re all spending a lot more time at home, video calls have become our window to the outside world. Whether it’s that Monday morning team meeting or Friday night virtual wine club with friends, most of our face to face interaction has been confined to Zoom with our living room, unfinished home office or pending DIY projects providing the backdrop!

Fancy brightening things up a bit? Well, we have just the thing to pimp out your video call. We’ve created over 30 virtual backgrounds offering a snapshot of Belfast city, including:

The backgrounds work on all major video conference call platforms, including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype and Slack. Simply click on any image to download and save it, then set it as your virtual background on via the settings on your video call app.


Sit on the throne in Hillsborough Castle. Or pull up a chair next to the Big Fish. Here are some of Belfast’s top visitor attractions that you can set your virtual background.
