Victoria's Square is only a few minutes walk from the Hilton Belfast, with 2 floors of shops and an additional 2 floors of restaurants and fast food outlets, including a cinema you'll definitely find whatever it is you're after, especially being in the middle of the town centre meaning even more shops just outside! You're also able to get a lift (or walk up a very large spiral staircase- don't be fooled, there are more stairs than you think!) to the very top of Victoria's Square Dome with a great 360 view over Belfast, which is beautiful at night.

Although Belfast has had something of a bad reputation in the past I found no evidence of this in the people I met. I hope the positive way that the City is now moving forward continues,the people make the city & seem very welcoming to visitors.

There are many opportunities for History lovers with the Titanic Connection I never managed to get into the Titanic Exhibition but it looked impressive. A good way to see the city is to take an open top bus tour which takes in all the area where the main "Troubles" took place & allows you to see the famous wall murals on the Falls & Shankhill roads.The city now has a lot of modern buildings where Belfast has re-built some of it's troubled past & these sit side by side with many of the fine Victorian & Georgian buildings.If you are into football there is also the George Best connection.The best thing is to make a visit I do not think you will be disappointed.

By avoiding the July 12 "celebrations" but anytime before that...I was there early July, wasn't that crowded then. Off season traveling or low season traveling is a good idea.

All the main stores are in the city center and there are two large shopping centers off the main street as well. It's a very friendly city and very easy to get around.

Be sure to head out early, as clubs close earlier (2am) than a lot of other European cities. The cathedral quarter is more expensive, but not by much, and well worth a visit.

The recent history. Taxi tour of the Falls and Shankill murals was a different experience to most city tours - even the bus tour in Belfast. You really do hear the view of people who live there. Worth doing both.
