‘A History of Terror’
A city centre walking tour which explains the history of the Troubles and the path to peace. The tour is rated as ‘Excellent’ by Tourism Northern Ireland, named ‘Belfast Tour of the Year’ by the Luxury Travel Guide and ranked fourth in the UK on TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Awards for 2019 – the highest rated attraction outside London.
Starting at Belfast City Hall with an expert guide, over 2 hours, you will visit eight locations where some of the most tragic events of the conflict occurred. The tour allows you to explore and understand the most turbulent period in Belfast's recent past and what it was like to live in Belfast during the Troubles.
Whilst walking through the Cathedral Quarter and finishing on the banks of the River Lagan, the tour will also explain the peace-building process and demonstrate the reconciliation and regeneration which has taken place in the city since the ceasefires in the early 1990s.
The tour is a way for you to get a real feel for the history of the city. Many guests say they have felt transported back in time through the rich and detailed story-telling. Witness how far the city has come since those dark days and see Belfast in a new light.
The trained guides are among the most knowledgeable conflict historians in Northern Ireland.
The tour is recognised as being balanced, objective and historically accurate. It is unbiased and suitable for all visitors to Belfast, regardless of how much or little they already know of the troubled past.
