Located on the Newtownards Road, in the heart of east Belfast, EastSide Visitor Centre provides all the information you need to discover the wealth of visitor experiences on offer in EastSide.

East Belfast was once the beating heart of the city's industrial past with thousands of people employed in the linen mills, rope factories, engineering works and shipyards. Whilst these mills may have now closed and factories been replaced by housing, EastSide is now thriving once again but this time as a hub of culture and creativity.

EastSide boasts some of Belfast's most renowned cafes, bars and restaurants making the area popular amongst locals and attracting those in search of authentic Belfast experiences.

With a number of self-guided trails, starting and finishing from EastSide Visitor Centre, you can either walk in the footsteps of George Best's childhood, soak up the scenery which inspired some of Van Morrison's most famous songs or visit St Mark's Church where C.S. Lewis was christened in January 1899.

  • Templemore Baths Heritage Experience

    Templemore Baths Heritage Experience opened in June 2023 and is a trip through the original Victorian features of the only remaining public baths on the island of Ireland. The restoration of the building has given a home to a fascinating aspect of the social history of Belfast and the local neighbourhood.

    Many original features have been lovingly restored including the ‘Major Pool’, which is fully operational for swimming and the old slipper baths. The former courtyard has been transformed into an attractive new atrium with a café.

    Templemore Baths Heritage space offers a year-round programme of tours, workshops and events for locals, schools and visitors. The old Victorian Templemore Baths boardroom and the ‘Minor Pool’ can both be hired for meetings and events offering a unique space in the heart of EastSide.

    The Heritage Space is open for self-guided visits Monday- Friday, 09:00-17:00 and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00-14:00.

    Guided tours are also available to book here
