Lagan Weir is not only a pedestrian bridge but also an engineering solution to keep the level of the river artificially constant. This helped to avoid mudflats and excluded a strong smell because of them. It also helped to improve the water quality and the...More

It is lovely to walk alongside the river and end up at this place. You have really nice views of the river and part of the harbor. It is specially beautiful at sunset.

This is the best place to view up and downstream of the river Lagan. I caught it on a calm day and reflections on the water were amazing

I liked the old bridge, but it was admittedly purely functional. The new one is big and broad and curvy. There are even benches midway you can sit on. Do stop and take time, if you can, to look for swimming seabirds below.

There are several bridges over the River Lagan, and precisely in this central area, there are several pieces, two of which are clean footbridges. This also serves in part as water lock. This is a great way to go if we are to the nearby...More

Very nice modern bridge with great views of the water. You can catch this on your way to the Titanic Museum.

Lagan Weir is a nice way to walk over the Lagan in the direction of either the Odyssey Complex or the city centre. The views are lovely from both the Weir & look-out & you can get some good photos of the big fish. I...More

This attraction can be found beside the "Big Fish" on Donegall Quay. The footbridge crosses the Lagan River, and it's a shortcut over to the Odyssey. On the bridge, there are many locks, put there by ordinary folk, as a sign of their love for...More
