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

Our first self-guided tour is: ‘West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More’. It’s an indepth overview of the history of the Troubles in West Belfast.

There are over 30 stops across West Belfast, and a suggested 2.5 hour route visiting 16 of the most famous murals, memorial gardens and peacewalls in the Falls and Shankill districts.
