It's got natural beauty. It's got tons of history. And it's got super-friendly locals who know how to have a good time. No wonder Belfast is one of the hottest destinations in Europe to visit. Quick to charm and packed with brilliant attractions, including the world-class Titanic Belfast, this is a city that's bursting with creativity. You'll see it in the boundary-pushing art galleries of the Cathedral Quarter, in the super-cool pop-up restaurants that spring up around the city, and in the bustle of St George's Market, where artisan food producers rub shoulders with craftspeople (Fri-Sun). Dig a little deeper, and you'll uncover the layers of history that make Belfast such a compelling place, from its Bronze Age origins to its prosperous shipbuilding past.
