Walking Tour

Our walking tour takes you on a journey through the streets of working class inner East Belfast. From the Newtownards Road to the Albertbridge Road, we take you on a journey of religious and political upheaval. During the 1970s death stalked these streets as a conflict began between the Loyalist and Republican communities, a conflict that would last for 30 years. Let us show you some of the EastSides key locations.
