Standard hop on hop off bus tour, but dependant where you get on, it finishes in the centre then you have to wait for another bus to start the tour. Beware of the open top deck when you go up to Stormont - it’s freezing!

Belfast surprises. Great museums, fine buildings, and a deep and sometimes troublesome history. The sightseeing tours showed it all and the live commentary was a great bonus.More
