Visit Belfast, 9 Donegall Square North
27th March: 1.00pm – 3.00pm
The Ulster-Scots have helped to shape the modern world in many, diverse and sometimes surprising ways.
Join a blue badge guide on a walk-through Belfast to explore the inventions, politicians, scientists etc who have hailed from these shores and left an indelible mark on today’s world.
The Ulster-Scots have always punched well above their weight and their impact reverberates across the ages. No other group has had such a lasting impact on the formulating of modern America, for instance, from the drafting of the constitution to the election of Donald Trump, these people have held a direct influence. This tour begins in the city centre and takes in local landmarks and points of interest before heading over to the Ulster-Scots centre to explore this wonderful resource. You will do so in the hands of a qualified Blue Badge guide from the Northern Ireland Tourist Guide Association, the largest and most well-established guiding association in NI.
