Description

An expert led tour of the places, buildings, memorials of Belfast where the people who planned, built, lived and died. Join professional Titanic guide Peter Fox on a unique trail of the RMS Titanic.

Belfast’s shipyards built the biggest, best and most luxurious ships in the world. Those ships went on to become world famous and the White Star Line ships built there were the jewel in the crown of the Harland & Wolff Crown. Titanic’s Belfast location is world famous yet the trail of that beautiful ship can still be found in Belfast, if you know where to look that is! This incredible tour experience has been written, developed and led by Peter Fox who is THE Titanic expert in Belfast who has been delivering insightful Titanic tours for over five years. Peter is a researcher and writer on the citizens of Belfast and the North of Ireland who built the mighty Titanic by hand and the crew and passengers who sailed on her. The unique experience will lead you though the streets of Belfast to the places where the shipyard men lived, worshipped and their eventual fate not forgetting the families they left behind. Peter also illuminates the experience with a rich history of the buildings still standing that played a part in the Titanic story and the people, places and companies who’s future lay in the success of not only Titanic but the White Star Lines contracts with Harland & Wolff. From the places where sumptuous dinners when Titanic was launched were held to the slums where the workers lived, Peter brings the hidden trail of Titanic alive on this unique tour which concludes at the Titanic Memorial at Belfast City Hall.

The Revolutionary Belfast Walking Experience is a series of four expert lead walking tours telling the story of the evolution of Belfast from its creation as a town and rebel beginnings before becoming the most loyal city in the British Empire. Belfast became the Jewel in the Crown of the British Imperial led Industrial Revolution with the largest Shipyards, Linen Mills and Rope making factories to name just a few. Yet that same city raised a volunteer army ready to fight the British Army to maintain its constitutional place within the Empire and the scene was set for a Bloody Civil War when an opposing army was raised to enact Home Rule laws and institutions. Both World Wars took a toll on Belfast, its buildings and citizens yet the city became infamous for its ‘Troubles’ that again seen the city devastated and surrounded by iron gates.  Yet today Belfast is one of the most peaceful places to visit and is one of the top destinations in the world to explore.  These series of tour experiences are aimed at visitors to Belfast to discover its fascinating history or to local people who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of Irish history and politics delivered by experts in their respective fields.
