Belfast is a city with a remarkable heritage, from its emergence as a world centre of industry and shipbuilding, through a generation of political and social turmoil, to the vibrant and growing urban centre that you see today. Throughout Belfast’s history the character, humour and local pride of its residents has always been a defining part of the city. Modern Belfast offers a fantastic quality of life, and with a relatively young population the city continues to evolve and develop.
Belfast has a thriving arts and cultural scene ranging from the traditional to the highly contemporary – something to cater for all tastes. And the city’s relatively compact geography means it’s all within easy reach. However, if you want a break from the hustle of the city you don’t have to travel far before you’re surrounded by stunning countryside and coastline. Places to go, things to do, and trip ideas can be found here.
Queen’s University, based in the heart of Belfast, is one of the leading universities in the UK and Ireland, providing world-class education underpinned by world-class research.
