Once a bitter sign of division, see how they have been transformed to signify solidarity and unity in the city. For a raw, humbling and informative tour, we recommend that you book through a local cab tour and explore this city’s iconic history through the eyes of those involved.
ULSTER FOLK & TRANSPORT MUSEUM
Take a step back in time at the Ulster Folk and Transport museum. Walk the cobbled streets, step into the carpenter’s workshop, grab the groceries at the corner shop, test your spelling skills in the school, try your hand at traditional bread baking, view the towns mill, enjoy the traditional houses and let the actors in period dress take you back to a simpler time.
This is a full-size replica of a Northern Irish town in the early 19th Century and their comprehensive transport museum gives visitors a real sense of what life was like here 100 years ago.
THE CROWN LIQUER SALOON
Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its heartily classic pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous Irish hospitality.
The great thing about this place is that it’s not just a tourist attraction, it fills up with locals in the evenings and lets visitors become part of the everyday life of this great city.
