A New View of the Giant’s Causeway
Event Description

Millions have visited the Giant’s Causeway. Surely there is nothing new to discover there? But in 2021 a new theory was announced that explained why the columns descend to sea level only at the Causeway, and overturned an 80-year-old idea that the lava had filled an ancient valley. The evidence is surprisingly obvious, and will be explained in simple terms as part of a broader overview of the volcanic history of the Causeway Coast. Join Dr Michael Simms for a walk around the Causeway to find out more.

Please note there is a walk at 12.30pm.

This event is included in your admission to the Giant's Causeway Visitor's Centre.
