Option One: Visit and sign the Peace Line and join the list of world celebrities including Bill Clinton and the Dalai Lama who have signed their name to the wall. Walk along this huge wall which divides the two religious/national communities of east Belfast. The political murals, some of which are the most spectacular in the world, reflect a harrowing and tragic chapter in the history of Northern Ireland. Your personal local guide will relate to you their personal and family experiences of life in Belfast during The Troubles, some of the stories you quite simply won’t believe.
Option Two: Your alternative to a Black Taxi Tour is to visit the Belfast Titanic quarter and the state of the art Titanic Visitor Experience. Here you can experience the entire life and story of the Titanic, from her fateful maiden voyage to her eventful discovery on the seabed of the North Atlantic. Learn about the origins, construction, launch and history of the Titanic. The experience contains interactive features so you can truly explore the Titanic story in an insightful light. The journey will take you beyond the aftermath of the sinking to the later discovery of the ship. This tour will also take you to the present day with a tour of the live undersea exploration centre.
If some of your family wish to visit one attraction and others wish to do the other, that’s perfectly alright as we will regroup before we depart for the Giant’s Causeway. Depart Belfast at 11:50am.
