An award winning academic led tour of the sites of conflict and division across Belfast


This tour visits and explains the major sites of conflict in Belfast before taking customers to the fascinating walls and murals that is the ongoing legacy of the 'Troubles. ' The tour is undertaken by a qualified teacher, author and lecturer in Irish history and includes first-hand accounts of the killings, murders, and bombings of an inter-community conflict that has been ongoing for over 250 years.

The tour is supported by free downloadable resources that can be used to enhance the tour's experience or used in a further academic study. This tour includes the sites of sadistic and mass murder but also includes how they were and are still justified by a still divided community today. This exclusive tour, validated by academics and hundreds of satisfied customers alike, takes you to places not covered by other tours including the architecture, history, mural art and the dark tourist trail covering the true story of the Belfast Peacewalls and Troubles.

Itinerary

The tour begins at Belfast's Brown Square where community division violence began in the early 19th century.

The tour then completes a journey of six sites of historical and visual interest across the Peacewalls of Belfast including murals, dividing walls, Peacewalls and sites of 'hidden' history not available on any other tour.
