Belfast Walk: No Mean City

Distance: Two miles

Time: Two hours

Advice: The whole walk is on pavement and tarmac and is accessible for wheelchair users and parents with buggies. There is an incline onto the footbridge over the Lagan at Donegall Quay but the ramp is in a spiral and not too steep. Click here for more health & safety advice...

More info: This is a city centre route beginning at City Hall and ending a short distance away from there in Donegall Street. At each of the eight stages you can enjoy a special experience through your mobile phone with characters from past and present sharing their experience of Belfast with you.
