For a study trip with a difference, Belfast has the lot! It is the Capital of Northern Ireland and therefore has plenty to offer in terms of British history and Irish culture.
Its seamless integration of breath-taking modern architecture alongside beautiful heritage sites makes for a unique, vibrant city that is just waiting to be explored.
One of the most notable periods of Northern Irish history was during The Troubles(1960s–1998). During this period of unrest in Northern Ireland, more than 3500 people lost their lives and Ireland is still feeling the results of this today. During your trip to Belfast, you can explore some of the most important areas affected by the troubles by taking part in the History & Politics walking tour. Belfast is scattered with memories of the troubles, from artworks and memorials to 'peace lines', there is so much important history to see and learn about here in Belfast.
The city is perhaps most famous for its role in the creation of the RMS Titanic, The Dockyards from which the ship was built have been preserved and a brand new centre has recently been opened to tell the story of the Titanic from its birth to the unfortunate maiden voyage. We recommend you visit the dockyards which are an important part of the city’s history.
Belfast has seen a remarkable turnaround in recent years and is fast becoming a tourist hotspot.
Its excellent excursions make it a great destination for school trips with Belfast Castle, Ulster Museum and Titanic Belfast being firm favourites with groups. Contact us today to book your next study trip to Belfast.
