The North Belfast Heritage Trail takes in 14 historically significant buildings, who form part of the Great Place North Belfast project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund NI.

All you need to do is look out for the #greatplacenorthbelfast QR codes on the outside of each. Simply scan the QR code with your device to read more about the building, including a significant artefact that lies within and a story uncovered from their archives. You will also have the opportunity to listen to a special recording of someone close to the building talking about their experiences of it.

We recommend you start your tour on the steps of Belfast Cathedral (St Anne’s) (1), travel up Donegall Street where you will see Redeemer Central (2), followed by St Patrick’s Church and Parochial House (3). From there turn right towards Frederick Street to see the Quaker Meeting House (4), and just across the road Clifton House (5) on North Queen Street. From Clifton House, head up Clifton Street to see Clifton Street Cemetery (6)Belfast Orange Hall (7) and the Indian Community Centre (8).

Next, travel up the Crumlin Road where you will find Carnegie Old Park Library (11) and the North Belfast Working Men’s Club (12). For our last few stops, retrace your steps back down the Crumlin Road to Carlisle Circus, and travel up the Antrim Road to find Annesley Street Synagogue (9), St Malachy’s College (10)Duncairn Arts and Culture Centre (13) and finally Dunlewey (14), 34 – 36 Cliftonville Road, your last stop on the trail.
