Really quirky wonderful little hidden gem in Belfast- you'll often hear it, but you can also go up the elevators and catch Lewis Carrol's characters taking a spin around the clock- be there just before the hour for the full effect. It only lasts a...More
The clock chimes out the hour tunefully and some characters appear from Alice in Wonderland. This would be an unusual draw to a rather quiet street in Belfast if there was more information nearby. Hardly anyone bothers to ride the short escalator to the top...More

Almost hidden away in a side street behind the main shopping drag this quaint feature sits on a first floor (that’s one up from the ground for our American readers) and comprises 24 bells hanging over the escalators to street level. It also has a...More
