Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Tours


Belfast’s cathedral quarter, with St. Anne’s Cathedral centre stage, has become the beating heart of Belfast, with popular pubs, cafes and a vibrant night life. However it is also where the story of the city begins, with the earliest streets and the city’s first public building and Presbyterian Church. In the 19th century it was Belfast’s mercantile and commercial quarter, with many of its grand buildings dating from that time. Trace the story of these times, with the old river and former marine highway, now running beneath your feet.

Key Sites: St. Anne’s Cathedral – Writer’s Square – Rosemary Street Presbyterian Church – Castle Place – Custom House Square – Albert Clock, The former Ulster Bank HQ (now Merchant Hotel) – Old Market House – Northern Whig.
