Welcome to the Original Free Belfast Tour! Belfast is a city of beautiful complexities which is constantly transforming and revealing a new aspect of it’s nature. Our Original Belfast FREE Walking Tour will show you all the beauty, history, excitement and inspiration Belfast has to offer. The name “Belfast” is rooted in the Gaelic“Beal Feirste” which means mouth of sandy ford, this is very telling to the city’s relationship with the water which provided the city’s historic growth. From there Belfast developed a unique and strong history with industry and trade. As the port city expanded to be home to the infamous Titanic and it’s shipyards! Both one of the city’s major triumphs and tragedies, this is an example of one of the many historical sights we explore on our tour!
