Important information

Please note that audio-guided tours aren't possible during services. Services usually take place from Wednesday to Friday at 13:00, and at 11:30 and 15:30 on Sundays.
  • See the striking Spire of Hope. This unique addition to the city skyline enters the Cathedral through a glass platform that you can look up through from the choir stalls
  • Visit the Tomb of Lord Carson – the only person to ever be buried at the Cathedral. Carson led the anti-Home-Rule in Westminster and came to dominate the Unionist cause in Ulster
  • See the Titanic Pall, that 12ft by 8ft pall that features 1,500 gold crosses and Stars of David, each representing a lost life on the fated ship of dreams

If you're looking for some peace and quiet in the middle of bustling Belfast, spend some time in the romantically Romanesque St. Anne’s Cathedral. The beautiful mosaics, stained glass windows, and Romanesque arches will fill your eyes and spirit.

Today, St Anne's Cathedral is a much-loved venue for concerts, recitals and carol services and it's also still a sacred space and place of worship.

Choose between the audio guide or the visitor's booklet to accompany you as you explore the lofty interior with all its Romanesque charms. You'll find stained glass windows and stunning mosaics in Italian glass, made over the course of seven years by sisters Gertrude and Margaret Martin (now that's a family project to be proud of).

Check out the mosaic over the font, said to hold over 150,000 pieces, and some nifty needlework including the Titanic Pall. This huge cross featuring stitches of silk, rayon, metallic and cotton is navy blue to symbolise the sea, and is dedicated to those who perished on the Titanic in April 1912.

Don't forget to check out the new InSpire Kid’s Trail.

Loved the tour and the vocal guide, although it was better when we went the correct direction. Although all the information is also written, I liked the audio. There is a small Charge 4 -5?
