Take a tour through time and learn about Northern Ireland's turbulent history of sociopolitical tension, with a guided walking tour through Belfast.

Over the course of 2 hours and 15 minutes, local expert guides will take you on a journey through the city centre of Belfast to discover how The Troubles started.

Visit the locations where some of the most important events occurred, and learn about the path to reconciliation and eventually peace, and the challenges the future may hold.

You'll discover the realities of growing up and living life during times of conflict, and how it touches everyone in the community. The tour is factual and historically accurate to ensure it is unbiased.

The guides are conflict historians, who also weave their own stories into their tours to bring history to life, transporting you back to the Belfast of the 1970s and giving you a unique understanding of the recent past.
