Check out many places like Parliament Buildings, George’s Market, Belfast City Hall, Cathedral Quarter, and the Albert Clock on this 2-hour tour. Next, visit the Titanic Belfast. One of the most famous attractions in Belfast, this museum is created at the former site of the Harland & Wolff shipyard. Apart from displaying exhibits that talk of Belfast’s maritime heritage through many full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive artifacts, this is also the site where the RMS Titanic was built. After lunch, head to the Botanic Gardens. A popular public park, this place has a display of many tropical species of plants and a beautiful conservatory.
