I have a bit of a thing about accents, always have. Something about someone with a really strong Irish, Scottish, Italian accent that just really thrills me – add in a Hollywood star with the accent and I am all aflutter. If for no other reason than just the accent, Ireland is somewhere I have always wanted to visit. Of course, there are so many things to do when visiting, I thought I’d share some of the ideas of things to do I have found when researching a visit to Belfast.
If you’re anything like me and LOVE watching Line of Duty, there is an awesome Line of Duty Tour which you can go on! Your 2 ½ hour Line of Duty tour takes you on behind the scenes look at this popular series giving you the chance to stand on the spot of your screen heroes. You’ll get the chance to see the locations where some of the most exciting and memorable scenes were filmed. Also learn about the real-life inspiration for this crime drama.
After having watched copious amounts of Cbeebies Go Jetters, I also have the Giant’s Causeway on my to visit list. According to legend, the columns are the remains of a causeway built by a giant. The story goes that the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool), from the Fenian Cycle of Gaelic mythology, was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner.
Following along on my Hollywood loves, I used to and still do adore the film Titanic. I saw it at the cinema 7 times with my friends when it came out and the love continues.
Delve into the fascinating history of the Titanic at Titanic Belfast, the world’s largest Titanic exhibition, on a self-guided tour of the magnificent museum. Explore the institution at your own pace in order to discover insightful exhibits detailing the construction, voyage, and legacy of the infamous ship. Enjoy interactive displays; watch audio-visual presentations; and feel your adrenaline levels surge during an exhilarating Shipyard Ride. Receive complimentary entry to the SS Nomadic with your Titanic Belfast ticket.
Of course I just generally love hopping on an open top bus tour and seeing everything a new place has to offer and there are so many of these tours available. Now the world is opening up a bit, Belfast seems like a great way to warm up to travelling again without going too far from home.
With so much to see and do, I cannot wait to get back on the travel bus and head out to see what the world has to offer!
