Join your friendly tour manager this morning for a guided introduction to Belfast. Highlights will include major landmarks such as City Hall, Queen's and Stormont Castle – seat of the Northern Ireland Assembly and a stunning sight gradually revealed from the rising approach road. During the tour you'll also see West Belfast's celebrated Peace Wall, the political murals of the Shankhill and Falls roads, and the ultra-modern developments of the regenerated docks area, crowned by the breathtaking Titanic Quarter, home to Titanic Belfast. Titanic Belfast stands on the site where RMS Titanic was constructed over a century ago. Developed as much as a tribute to the days of shipbuilding in the city as in commemoration of the ill-fated liner that met her untimely end on her maiden voyage in 1912, Titanic Belfast is a dramatic, innovative and exciting presentation of the real story of the famous ship.Wander through its nine fascinating galleries, housed in one of the most eye-catching buildings to have been built in the UK for years. The afternoon is free to spend at your leisure. Perhaps choose to soak up the local atmosphere in one of the city centre's traditional pubs before heading by coach to the SSE Arena for tonight’s concert, the undoubted highlight of the trip. Acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest living musical legends, André Rieu was classically trained and is now an accomplished violinist, an excellent conductor and a truly great showman. Rapt audiences sway with his delightful music, hum along and even dance in the aisles, so prepare yourself for a truly unforgettable evening.
Today you’ll discover the breathtakingly scenic Antrim Coast, where the Nine Glens lead to the sea and to the world-famous Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO-listed site. This astonishing collection of closely-packed basalt columns, and acting as stepping-stones into the Atlantic from beneath the wild, windswept cliffs, is a remarkable sight. In fact formed 60-million years ago by a volcanic explosion, the stories of the Causeway's origin - it's said to have been built by the Irish hero and giant Finn MacCool so that he could cross to Scotland and do battle with a rival Scottish giant – are much more interesting to non-geologists. Although there is a minibus to take visitors to the Causeway from the visitor centre (payable locally), the energetic can walk the mile or so along the cliff path to be rewarded with some breathtaking views. Your journey back to the hotel takes you along the Causeway Coastal Road, past more spectacular views. Highlights of the wonderfully scenic drive will include bustling Ballycastle, a drive through the colour-washed village of Glenarm and stunning Glenariff – the Queen of the Glens. Spend your final evening in Belfast at leisure, enjoying the city’s lively nightlife and wide range of restaurants.
Depending on the time of your flight, you may have time to continue your exploration of Belfast under your own steam today, before heading home after a marvellous break.
