PLACE, 40 Fountain Street

Inspired Architecture: Churches of Belfast City Centre

Architectural Walking Tour

Every Sat & Sun in June | Book Online

Thurs 9th & 23rd June | Book Online

The story of Churches in Belfast is a long and fascinating one. With Inspired Architecture, we take you on a journey around the churches still active right in the city centre. You may be intrigued by the stories of different faiths working together to build their places of worship, the centres of community activity for many in the city, and you will be amazed and uplifted by the intricate design and construction - from St. Malachy's ceiling, "like a wedding cake turned inside out", to the columns of St. George's being floated down the canal to their new home.

This 1.5 hour walking tour departs PLACE, 40 Fountain Street (beside Boots) at 11am every Saturday and Sunday in June. Thursday evening tours (9th & 23rd June) depart PLACE at 6pm.

Please note, Churches are closed on Thursday evenings so there is no access to the interior of the buildings.

Cost: £6
