More information about Belfast

Training in Belfast

Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, located on the east shore of the River Lagan. It is the 12th biggest city in the United Kingdom and Ireland’s second largest. Belfast was an important harbour by the early nineteenth century. It played a key part in the Irish Industrial Revolution, momentarily being the world’s largest linen manufacturer, earning it the title “Linenopolis.” It was a prominent centre of Irish linen manufacture, tobacco processing, and ropemaking by the time it was awarded city status in 1888. Shipbuilding was also prominent; the Harland and Wolff shipyard, which produced the RMS Titanic, was the largest in the world.

Belfast is a car city, with 77% of all trips taken by automobile, 11% taken by public transportation, and 6% taken on foot. This is backed up by a robust road network, including the 22.5-mile M2 and M22 motorways. In the city, black cabs are popular. Private hire cabs much outnumber them.

Bus and Rail

Belfast’s bus and train public transportation systems connect residential regions to the city centre via 12 high-quality bus routes that operate along major radial highways.

Northern Ireland Railways runs metropolitan services via Belfast’s northern suburbs to Carrickfergus, Larne, and Larne Harbour, eastwards to Bangor, and south-westwards to Lisburn and Portadown.

Belfast has a direct train service to Dublin, but no train services to other cities in the United Kingdom due to a lack of bridge or tunnel connections.

Things to do in Belfast

Parks and gardens

Belfast is surrounded by mountains, which give an ideal microclimate for horticulture. Belfast has a lot of parkland and woodland parks, which are a big part of the city’s history and home to a lot of indigenous species.

There are about 40 public parks in Belfast. The Botanic Gardens in the Queen’s Quarter is one of the most popular. The Botanic Gardens Palm House, built in the 1830s, is one of the first examples of a cast-iron glasshouse. Rose gardens and live music concerts are among the park’s other attractions.

The International Rose Garden at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park, to the south of the city centre, draws thousands of tourists each year. Its 128-acre grounds include a Japanese garden, a walled garden, and the Golden Crown Fountain, which was built in 2002.

Belfast Zoo is one of the few zoos in the United Kingdom that is supported by the local government. The zoo is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions, with over 295,000 visits each year.

Because of the loss of their natural habitats, most animal exhibitions are classed as ‘at risk’ species. The zoo shelters around 1,200 animals from 140 distinct species and participates in European and worldwide breeding programmes that serve to secure the survival of several endangered species.
