    This is a huge statue on the waterfront, a close walk from the city centre. We drove past on the Hop-On Hop-Off Red Bus Tour on the way to Titanic Belfast, but it is worth a closer look at the fish to see the intricate tiles and the stories they tell of Belfast.

    There are also a couple of colourful Game Of Thrones artworks nearby, which are definitely worth a look and few photos too.

    It's a must for the Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe fans.

    All the statues are beautifully crafted and it's a joy to find them all.

    Its a lesser known spot, but it's worth a visit if you are in the area. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in the area.

    Worth a visit 😊

    Do not miss the windows if you are a GoT fan! They took us 90 minutes and we did them first thing in the morning. There were no crowds and we had the walk to ourselves. We parked at The Titanic Experience and did the first couple of windows past the Titanic building, then backtracked all the way to the pedestrian bridge. Over the bridge to see the last one (Stark window).
    Google maps Glass of Thrones will show you the locations.
    Each one has a little plaque to tell you about them and if you take photos of both sides, you will notice the colours are more brilliant on one side due to the sun position.

    Our children loved The lion, the witch and the wardrobe. This statue is a lovely tribute to C.S. Lewis whose imagination created the lovely story.
    Good views from the city sightseeing bus, where you can also stop by to look at the Square and statue.

    Highly educative walking tour led by Dara Bennett not only informed us of the history of this and other cemeteries, but also weaves in a fascinating discourse on the economic and social history of Belfast, and also of a diversity of colourful characters who have shaped its evolution over the past two Centuries.

    Exactly as the title says. If you’re heading that way it’s worth a stop to find out exactly what they’re about. It was interesting to learn about the history of farming in Belfast

    There are several statues and monuments in the grounds of City Hall in Belfast and all free to visit.
    This one is of Frederick Hamilton Temple Blackwood to give his full name. He was one of the most successful diplomats of his time.
    This statue was unveiled in 1906. He stands below a canopy with figures representing India & Canada.
    This really is a lovely grand memorial.

    The Lord Kevin Statue is just inside the Botanic gates. There are pathways that lead to beautiful flower gardens as well at Queens University. It’s a great place to go for an evening walk.

    The Hall of Friendship is part of the Home Front exhibition at NI War Memorial. I did have to ask the member of staff to point out the Hall of Friendship area as there are no actual markings (I was expecting him to direct me out into a hall!). He explained that it is one corner of the main exhibition (top left corner at window). He also did explain that as they had to move from Waring Street to their new home in Talbot Street the exhibition was condensed to be able to fit everything in. It was good to know that there had been such good friendships between the American forces & the Northern Irish people during the 2nd World War.

    Glad I called in for a visit.

    This is a regal and elegant statue of Sir Edward James Harland. Harland was half of the famous Harland & Wolff shipbuilders who were the prominent shipbuilders in Belfast. H&W is where the Titanic was built.

    The Giant's Ring is a neolithic monument set on high ground above the Minnowburn area. It is a circular mound of earth which was probably higher when first built and encloses an area of several acres.
    It may have had a wooden pallisade on the mound and may have served to offer protection to the ancient people.
    In the centre is a structure of standing stones which some say served as a tomb.

    We visited the gardens at City Hall in Belfast which are free to look around and found several statures and monuments as well as one to the Titanic.
    This large statue commemorates the South African Boer War and was unveiled on 6 October 1905.

    As far as Titanic memorials in Belfast go, this 14 metres high and almost 4 metres wide bronze and steel sculpture (2009) on the quayside of the Abercorn Basin was the one I preferred. Sculptor Tony Stallard has managed to remind people of the construction of the Titanic in a unique way that is both symbolic and playful. His sculpture takes the form of a huge toy modelling kit containing parts of the Titanic (hull, funnels, and propellers), with some elements missing from the framework as if they had already been assembled. A nice detail is the fact that Harland and Wolff, the builders of the famous Titanic, were involved in the construction of the sculpture.
