Tourist Attractions in Belfast:

1. Titanic Belfast

Billed as "the world's largest Titanic visitor attraction," this distinctive landmark building is a tribute to the story of Belfast's interesting maritime history. Nine interactive exhibitions show how Belfast has developed from a city that once boasted the most powerful ship-building industry in the world into a reborn visitor destination.

2. Waterfront Hall

Just over a mile from the Titanic Quarter and overlooking the River Lagan in central Belfast, the Waterfront Hall is a world-class entertainment and conference venue that, in no uncertain terms, reflects the regeneration of the city. Since opening in 1997, the center has seen more than five million visitors and now attracts top musicians and performers from around the world, as well as hosting a range of exhibitions.

3. The Botanic Gardens

A pleasant way to relax for a few hours, the Botanic Gardens was established in 1828 and has been owned by Belfast City Council since 1895 when it became a public park set on 28 acres. The elegant Palm House (designed by Sir Charles Lanyon) contains a diversity of tropical plants, including birds of paradise and lush hanging baskets. Comprised of curved iron and glass, the structure is one of the earliest examples of a glasshouse made in this way, and demonstrates how advances in technology at the time allowed horticulturists to grow exotic plants.

4. St. Anne's Cathedral

Designed by architect Sir Thomas Drew and begun in 1898, St. Anne's Cathedral is the main church of the Anglican Church of Ireland. It was built in the neo-Romanesque style of the basilican type and has three west doorways adorned with sculpture. The baptismal chapel features an exquisite mosaic ceiling. Further points of interest are the carved stonework, many fine stained-glass windows, marble tiles on the floor and walls, and delicate woodwork.

5. Belfast Zoo

Belfast Zoo, set on 55 acres with views over Belfast Lough. Home to more than 140 species of animals, this fun family destination was opened in 1934 and is one of the oldest tourist attractions in Northern Ireland. It was extensively upgraded in recent years, and nowadays in excess of 300,000 people visit the zoo annually. Highlights include ring-tailed lemurs, Asian elephants, monkeys, Malayan sun bears, Sumatran tigers, and Barbary lions.

A must-see here is the rainforest exhibit, which brings together tropical plants with fascinating animals such as sloths and fruit bats. Check the zoo's website for details of its daily animal talks and feeding schedule.
