What you'll do

Belfast has a fascinating history and really came into it's own in the late Victorian era. During a walk of just under 4km over a period of 4 hours, I will delve into the backstory of figures associated with Belfast who have made a significant contribution to the field of science or engineering. Some of these people are well known, other less so but I hope you'll find it as interesting as I do to hear their stories and discover what effect their legacy has had on Northern Ireland and the world. As it is also a pub crawl, we will be stopping in 3 historical pubs during our tour to experience the less scientific side of Belfast's history! I can recommend a fourth pub or bar at the end of the tour depending on your preferences. The tour is available without the pub stops and this will take around 2 hours to cover the same distance. The route is flat and should be accessible to people of most mobility levels. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or requests, I look forward to seeing you!

Rachel

I'm a Belfast native with a PhD in chemistry and a strong interest in local history. I'm also a big fan of local pubs so what better way to combine my interests than a science-themed pub crawl of Belfast! When I travel, I love finding out about the place I'm staying and meeting locals so I want to offer that experience to visitors to Belfast. I particularly welcome solo travellers as well as non-tourists - why not come along and learn something!

Where you'll be

For the pub crawl, join me at the Ulster museum and we will make our way past a number of city centre sites to finish at the City Hall. We will stop for a pint, gin or your beverage of choice at 3 famous historical pubs. For a walking tour only, we will begin at the City Hall and finish at the Ulster museum.
