Yardmen Walking Tour 

Thurs 9 Aug
EastSide Visitor Centre

2 PM


Last year’s sell-out tour is back!  This 2.5-hour walking tour, led by local historian and tour guide Laura Spence will take you through the heart of east Belfast, following in the footsteps of the ‘Yardmen’ who built the ships that would wear out the oceans.  We will examine the murals, the industrial history of the area, the 1912 Ulster Covenant, the impact of the two World Wars and the more recent Troubles; and of course, the story of Titanic - made in Belfast.  The tour will include a visit to the Shipyard Workers' Church and the Templemore Baths.
