A fascinating and authentic part of Belfast's maritime and shipbuilding history. The nearby Titanic Belfast museum is impressive in its design and scope, but doesn't quite capture the sense of history as these original landmarks.

One of Belfast’s oldest buildings, dating back to 1780, reintroduced as an modern Irish pub with a cosy peat fire and large beer gardens. The building was used as a bonded spirit warehouse from 1921. It was then known as ‘STACK N’ and still bears a giant red painted ‘N’ on its brick façade. The distinctive external wooden structure is another original feature. For a quiet pub during the day, or a busy venue with a great atmosphere at night, this is a good place to experience a forward looking city.

My favourite pub in Belfast. The Sunflower is on the corner of Kent Street and Union Street, a site on which a public house has stood for over 100 years. The security cage on its front door is a relic from 1980’s Belfast. While the cage is no longer needed for security reasons it has been kept and preserved as part of the city’s social history. The pub attracts a creative and friendly crowd and has become known for its regular live music and open-minded, welcoming vibe.

Palm House conservatory is a Victorian glasshouse made from curved iron and glass. The tropical wing, which houses the dome, added in 1852, and a cool wing. This conservatory is thought to be Charles Lanyon’s only attempt at designing this type of building and it is one of the oldest surviving examples of its type in the world, predating the Kew glasshouse in London by four years. The Ulster Museum sits on the periphery of the Botanic Gardens. Both are free to visit.
