Taking a trip to Belfast is brilliant at any time, the visitor attractions, the restaurants and bars and of course the budget hotels like the Travelodge Belfast Central keep getting better and better. But now there’s even more incentive to book a city break to Belfast, Brexit. With the extremely attractive value of sterling in comparison to the euro, there’s never been a better time to visit Belfast city with Brexit making it cheaper by the moment and not just for shoppers with a keen eye for a bargain.
There are so many things to do and see when you visit Belfast whether that’s for business or for a few days with family. But if you want to get off to a great start on your Brexit trip to Belfast, we thought we’d give you a taste of the top things to do when you get to Belfast city.
Eat, Drink and Recover in Belfast
Eat yourself silly at the hugely impressive restaurant scene in Belfast but also shop for top food ingredients at the fabulous St. George’s Market. This indoor market has received many awards and when you visit it on your trip to Belfast, you’ll see exactly why. Saturdays are best for local produce but the Friday and Sunday markets are great to browse through with top quality local arts and the funkiest bric-a-brac stalls selling everything and anything.
Put your shopping bags down and explore the night life that Belfast city’s Cathedral Quarter offers. Located all around St. Anne's Cathedral, hence its name, this Belfast area has many great bars and restaurants to eat in and top clubs to dance the night away in. If you prefer a more refined night of culture, you have dynamic arts venues like The MAC and The Black Box tucked away in the same Cathedral Quarter.
What better way to calm your sore head after a night on the town in Belfast than taking a stroll through the city’s Botanic Gardens. Set in the wonderful surroundings of College Park near Queens University Belfast the gardens are an exotic but restful exhibition of nature displayed in beautiful settings like the Palm House and the Tropical Ravine.
The Magical Side of Belfast
When you’re in Belfast you can’t miss out on what is the world’s largest Titanic-themed attraction and now one of the world’s top tourist sites. At Titanic Belfast, you can relive the story of one of the world’s greatest ships on its ill-fated maiden voyage through galleries, special effects, rides, reconstructions and interactive features which will appeal to all the family.
Alternatively, base yourself in the Travelodge Belfast Central Hotel and you can open a door into the Game of Thrones universe. From Belfast take a tour of filming locations like Cushendun Caves where Melisandre gives birth to a magic ‘shadow baby’ or Tollymore Forest Park in County Down where White Walkers roam and Ramsay Bolton hunted his tortured victims or travel to the eerie and beautiful Dark Hedges situated just outside Belfast.
Inspired by Game of Thrones? Visit an equally inspiring visitor attraction, the Ulster Museum and stroll through the incredible Early Peoples Gallery where you can stare at the spectacular collection of prehistoric stone and bronze artefacts from many of Ireland's most famous archaeological sites.
