A little something different to visit while wandering through Belfast. Take the time to look at all the different pieces that make up the scales.

Easy to find beside the River Lagan. There are seats just beside it if you would like to sit and take in the view

We saw this sculpture whilst walking around the city on our way to the Titanic Exhibition. A good photo opportunity!

Having taken a "Black Taxi" drop, to the Titanic Museum, we made a turn at this "fish sculpture". Walking back to our downtown hotel, the "fish" served as a navigation landmark for us. It is very unique. Can't miss it!

Yes, the big fish is a big fish. Sometimes we heard it referred to as the Big Salmon although it is blue, not pink! Imagine a huge, larger than life fish made up of a large number of blue-and-white plates with scenes of Belfast painted on them and that is what you have. Great for a photo, especially if you...
