The West Belfast Self Guided Tour – ‘West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More’

Our first self-guided tour is: ‘West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More’ – an in-depth overview of the history of the Troubles in West Belfast, it perfectly complements ‘A History of Terror’, our guided city centre walking tour and costs just £9.99.

With over 30 stops across West Belfast, and a suggested 2.5 hour route which visits 16 of the most famous murals, memorial gardens and peacewalls in the Falls and Shankill districts, it is an indispensable companion for anyone venturing into West Belfast to discover the stories of its streets and communities.
