Belfast Walk – 5th June 2015


It was a typical summers day for our walk, a few skiffs of rain, a cold breeze and the odd glimpse of the sun.  The day started in the right fashion with tea/coffee and scones in Flame on Howard St. before meeting up at the City Hall with our guide Billy Dickson. The walk went along the City Hall taking in the monuments on the eastern side, and then on to the Dublin Road and the Ulster Hall where were able to see the paintings in the Carey Gallery. The walk then took us along Ormeau Avenue to Alfred St. to view St. Malachy’s church, best known for its fan vaulted ceiling which is an imitation of the Henry VII Chapel in Westminster Abbey. We then continued along Sussex Place and Hamilton Street to St Georges Market Bar and Grill for lunch.
