This tour has designated space onboard specifically for wheelchair-bound passengers. You will see the beautiful sights of Belfast comfortably from a motor coach, with little or no walking. Enjoy commentary about the Grand Opera House and the Albert Memorial, before passing Queen’s University and the Botanic Gardens. Located within these gardens is the Palm House, a superb structure of cast iron and curved glass. When you arrive at Belfast City Hall, pause to appreciate this impressive building with a 300-foot-long façade of Portland stone. Your stop will include time for you to photograph what is perhaps the most noteworthy of the statues on the hall’s grounds — the marble figure of “Thane.” Sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock and positioned on a granite pedestal, the statue commemorates the 1912 sinking of the Titanic. Next, you’ll travel a bit outside of the city to see the Parliament Buildings, often referred to as Stormont. A symbol of progress throughout Northern Ireland’s troubled past, the neoclassical building is the seat of the Northern Ireland Assembly. Another highlight of the tour is your journey to Cave Hill, where Belfast Castle is located. With its familiar outline visible from many parts of the city, Cave Hill has captivated people for generations — becoming a fixture of Belfast’s history and culture. Belfast Castle, situated on the hill’s lower slopes, is one of Belfast’s most historically significant structures. Adding to its allure are beautiful gardens and an adjoining park. Before returning to your ship, you will have the chance to appreciate the splendid sight of Belfast Lough, as well as the view of the city below.
