Walking party on the second weekend of free November walks around Belfast as part of the Festival of Social Sciences

This weekend (13 &14th November) marked the second weekend of free walking tours that are being run as part of the Economic and Social Research Council’s Festival of Social Sciences.

The Festival is an annual celebration of the social sciences (e.g. history, political science, geography, etc) and features over 300 events from 34 partners across the UK.

Working with QUB, myself and a number of other Belfast tour guides who are either Northern Ireland Tourist Guide Association Blue Badge Guides, or recently completed the Association’s Belfast Green Badge course, are putting on free walking tours of the city centre.

The walks aim to show how the history and human story of the city through its built environment and public art.

For those interested in participating in the walks more information is here. They are free and will start at 10.00 on the Saturdays and Sundays of November  (remaining dates are 20, 21, 27 & 28 of November 2021).
