1. Pick up your car in Belfast City Airport and you’ll be out and on your way in minutes. If you have the time (and you should definitely try) then make your first port of call the Titanic Belfast Visitor Experience. Only a 5 minute drive from the airport, this captivating exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the journey of the Titanic, which was built right on this very spot.
This area is known as The Maritime Mile, and is full of attractions relating to Belfast’s shipping history including the Big Fish (a ten metre long mosaic fish installed in 1999 to celebrate the regeneration of the River Lagan), SS Nomadic and HMS Caroline. Game of Thrones® fans will be happy to know that a lot of the series was filmed just down the road, and the studios will be open for tours in the spring of next year.
