Belfast

First stop in Northern Ireland’s capital city has to be Titanic Belfast. Get the story of the ship of dreams, with eight interactive galleries, gantry rides, an underwater cinema and stunning recreation of Edwardian quarters. Just a seven-minute cycle away and you’re at the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast’s creative and cultural hub. The attention-grabbing St Anne’s Cathedral dominates the skyline and inside, the black and white marble floors and mosaic ceilings are simply stunning. Head to Avoca for a freshly made lunchtime bite, and then it’s back on your bike. 

Stop off at St George’s Market, one of Belfast’s oldest attractions. There’s been a market on this spot since 1604 and it has pretty much everything you could think of. Browse antiques, jewellery, artworks, books, photography, local foods and lots more. Another don’t-miss is the Botanic Gardens, a glorious tribute to the city’s Victorian heritage. Blooming with exotic flowers and birds of paradise, it also boasts some of the oldest seed plants in the world. Want to get outside the city limits? Grab a bike from nearby Divis Street, and make for the Divis Mountains – an arduous climb, but the views are worth it!
