Game of Thrones Glass Window Trail

The Game of Thrones glass window trail guides visitors from City Hall round to the Titanic Quarter, taking in lots of our other top spots on the way and celebrating Northern Ireland’s large part in making the HBO hit. The windows even have a built in selfie chair – perfect for striking your signature pose.

Titanic Quarter

From the cleverly designed Titanic Belfast to the stunning views from the old docks, stand where the Titanic once stood and explore Belfast’s ship making history – complete with iconic yellow Harland & Wolff cranes in the background.

St. George’s Market


Perfect for arts and crafts, shopping and foodies alike, St. George’s is bursting with Northern Irish produce, artists and makers. It’s no surprise it was named UK's Best Large Indoor Market in 2019
