Surrounded by a ring of hills and situated at the mouth of Belfast Lough, few cities have such a magnificent setting as Belfast. However, it is not just the scenery that draws people time and again to the city: according to Michael Palin, of Monty Python fame, who is a regular visitor, it is the warmth and friendliness of the people and the vitality and spirit of Belfast. To Jools Holland, the well known BBC presenter and musician, it is the most romantic city in the world. Find out more about the city by joining a Baileys Historical Pub Walking Tour and get to know the family owned and run old pubs of Belfast.

Belfast did not become a city until 1888, and experienced its major growth towards the end of the 19th century. It has many fine Victorian and Edwardian buildings and on our walk, which takes approximately two hours, we include landmarks such as the City Hall and the Grand Opera House

We explore the old entries of Belfast with names like Sugarhouse and Winecellar; these were the original narrow old town by ways. See Belfast's own leaning tower and cross where the river Farset once flowed through the town centre and gave its name to Belfast, Beal Feirsde, the crossing place or sandbank.

Do join us for a complimentary glass of Baileys and enjoy the craic.
