Belfast Hidden Tours explore the city's art, history, politics and culture by walking the streets, meeting local people and enjoying the craic!

Belfast Hidden Tours is unique, working in partnership with many local artists, historians and trades people to ensure you get the maximum exposure to the real Belfast. Belfast has a great deal to offer in terms of history, culture and art, and as a relatively small city, we are fortunate that such a large area of this beautiful and fascinating city can be explored in such a small space.

Learn about Belfast's history as a centre of trade, industry and culture through the ages. From its role in the formation of the United Irishmen and the 1798 Rebellion, to the horrific loss of life during the Belfast Blitz of 1941 and the 30 years leading up to the Good Friday Peace Agreement of 1998, locally known as The Troubles.

Tours run Monday – Sunday, at 10am and 12pm. Tickets priced at £10 and are available from the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre.
