Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland, resting upon the River Lagan on the country’s eastern coast. Belfast enjoyed a past reputation as a centre of industries such as shipbuilding, linen and rope-making, but these industries were heavily affected by violence associated with the Troubles from 1969 to 1998. Modern Belfast has gone through extensive redevelopment since then and today is attracting significant amounts of foreign investment.

Belfast’s history goes back to the Bronze Age, when a henge called The Giant’s Ring was located on the site of the city. Belfast continued to be small and of little importance throughout the Middle Ages until a castle was built there in the 12th century. This castle was destroyed and rebuilt many times all the way up until the 18th century when it was burnt down in a fire. Meanwhile, the site of Belfast remained small until 1640, when reduced import duty and the moving of the customs house from Carrickfergus to Belfast made it attractive to trade. In the 18th century the population of Belfast grew rapidly and it gained a reputation as a merchant town for industries such as linen. Shipbuilding also began in the 18th century, with the town’s location on the River Lagan being ideal for this. Belfast continued to grow in the 19th century, with industries including tobacco and rope making joining shipbuilding to help contribute to growth. Belfast was granted city status in 1888 and soon after became the largest city in Ireland, before the country split into Ireland and Northern Ireland in 1921.

There are two universities in Belfast. The first, and oldest, is Queen’s University Belfast, which is a Russell Group university founded in 1845. Originally opened in 1849 as Queen’s College, Belfast, it gained its present name in 1908. Today it is a large university with over 23,000 students and offers selection of degrees across a wide range of subjects. Queen’s University Belfast’s main campus is in the centre of Belfast, with additional buildings being spread across the south of the city. Famous alumni of the university include actors Liam Neeson and Stephen Rea, Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney, and Northern Ireland’s last Prime Minister, Lord Faulkner of Downpatrick. The other university in Belfast is Ulster University, a multi-campus university with a number of other campuses in Northern Ireland including Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee. 

Belfast features a number of cultural quarters, each designed to give a different feel for visitors based on the area’s history. The Cathedral Quarter, so called because of St Anne’s cathedral which lies in the centre, is a popular location for music concerts and street events. It plays host to a range of festivals every year, including the Cathedral Quarter Arts festival in spring and Culture Night in September. The Queen’s Quarter is another popular cultural area, which includes Queen’s University Belfast, as well as the 28-acre Botanic Gardens and Northern Ireland’s largest museum, the Ulster Museum. The Titanic quarter, a large waterfront development named after the famous ship which was once built there. Now, in the place of the former shipyard, is an impressive museum dedicated to the ill-fated ship. The area also features a science park, and continues to be developed into a centre for business, tourism and education.

Belfast is the home of the Northern Ireland national football team, who play their home matches at Windsor Park in south Belfast. Other football teams in Belfast include the premiership teams Cliftonville and Glentoran and clubs such as Donegal Celtic, Dundela and Harland & Wolff Welders. Belfast also has a very successful ice hockey team called the Belfast Giants. The Belfast Giants play in Britain’s top ice hockey league, the Elite Ice Hockey League, and have won the league four times. Ulster Rugby are based in Belfast, as do the rugby teams Belfast Harlequins, Instonians, Malone and Queen’s University.

Many famous and successful people have lived in Belfast. These include: Irish politician Gerry Adams, football player George Best, actors Sir Kenneth Branagh and Jamie Dornan, TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes, author C.S. Lewis and musician Van Morrison.
