Marco Polo: Belfast has a long and often turbulent history. This tour of the capital city of Northern Ireland takes you through the landmarks that have played their part in the city’s colourful development, from its great industrial triumphs to the civil unrest, which has often tarnished Belfast’s image; it will reflect the drive, determination and pride that Belfast undoubtedly has in its wealth of skill and talent. The two German-built giant cranes of Harland and Wolff shipyard, affectionately known as Samson and Goliath, dominate the Belfast skyline.
During a panoramic drive, enjoy commentary on such sights as the Grand Opera House and the Albert Memorial Clock Tower before passing Queen’s University and the Botanic Gardens. You will drive past Belfast City Hall, an impressive building with a 92m (300ft) long façade of Portland stone, which dominates Donegall Square.
A visit will be made to ‘Titanic Belfast’. Opened in April 2012, the signature building telling the story of Titanic has nine galleries containing a variety of interpretative materials and media including CGI, film and video, audio, archival materials and scale models. The adventure begins the moment you walk through the door and into the building’s giant atrium surrounded by the four-high impact ‘hull’ shaped sections which house the exhibition. As you wander up through Titanic Belfast, you will experience a ride through the re-construction of the shipyards and the Titanic under construction. The stories of passengers, crew and the heroes of the day will be told in an exciting and modern way.
