What you'll do

This tour takes 2 hours and covers just over 2kms. You will spend the first hour walking through Belfast's oldest streets as you head into the lost Dockers community of Sailortown, telling you about how it emerged and why it disappeared. During these 2 hours I will share an alternative side of Belfast, which is definitely not one seen by most visitors or even locals.

Richard

I have been providing a unique Walking Tour experience in Belfast for several years. Taking you off the beaten track to the lost Dockers community of Sailortown through Belfast's oldest streets. I am passionate about visitors seeing an alternative side of Belfast. Being able to share this unique and largely unknown history and place with others brings me huge satisfaction; it's an area of Belfast rich in experiences, characters and events. The lost Dockers Community was the backbone upon which this City was built, becoming an Industrial powerhouse on a global scale. Let me share it with you.
