The Merchants Who Grew a City - Walking Tour
Event Description

Belfast’s geography – its rivers, port and hills – played a key role in its industrial history. This walking tour covers the oldest parts of Belfast city, providing entertaining and informative accounts of the key figures behind the successful industries that grew Belfast from a small town to a prosperous Victorian city.

The tour takes in Donegall Quay, Clarendon Dock, the Cathedral Quarter, High Street and historic entries, where you’ll get acquainted with the people who developed shipbuilding, printing, linen and whiskey production. Belfast was once well-known around the world for these industries - and each was connected with its rivers and port. The city holds clues to these business ventures in the cobbled streets, entries and docks that the tour will explore…
