Vad du kommer att göra

Starting at Belfast city hall (we meet at the front gates of City Hall in Donegall Square North) and finishing by the Beacon of Hope beside the river Lagan, the tour visits 7 locations in the city centre where major events occurred during the conflict.

We start with a short introduction to Irish / British history and why the Troubles start in the late 1960’s. Over the course of 1.5 miles and 2 hours and 15 minutes we then tell the stories of each site; what happened and why, who was involved, and the effect these attacks had on the city and its people, affecting nearly every part of our daily lives.

We also demonstrate the impact of the peace process; you will witness the social and cultural regeneration of the city as we walk through the Cathedral Quarter and waterfront areas where you will also see some of the street art that demonstrates our newfound vibrant culture.

Throughout the tour we use visual aids with images of the Troubles and the places we visit from the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s to help you envisage the realities of life then compared to now.

The tour is factual and historically accurate to ensure it is unbiased and non-partisan, but we also weave our own stories into the tour to bring our history to life for you.

There is also time built into the tour to ensure that questions are encouraged from guests and that our answers are meaningful.

We are Mark Wylie, Paul ‘Donzo’ Donnelly and James Ellson, conflict historians with qualifications in Irish History, Politics and Anthropology. We were all born in Belfast in the 1960's, (in the year the Troubles began!).

We have worked extensively in teaching, mediation work with interface communities and ex-combatants, and Victims & Survivors groups, and of course as tour guides.

We began giving tours to visitors in 2013. We are immensely proud of our city and this is reflected in what we do. Our ‘A History of Terror’ Belfast city walking tour was Highly Commended at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards in 2019 and is the only ‘peace and reconciliation’ or ‘political history’ tour to receive a 5 star rating by Tourism Northern Ireland. Paul was named 'Top UK Tour Guide' at the Wanderlust World Guide Awards in 2019.

Mark was a very kind and welcoming guide! He was extremely knowledgeable and we learned so much about the city’s history. It was especially interesting to hear about the Troubles from someone who lived through it.

Great value for money with headset included in a 2 and a half hour tour. Not too long a walk with great story telling and the truth behind the troubles. James was an excellent tour guide!

A really detailed and interesting tour of the history of troubles in Belfast. Minimal walking so suitable for all, Steve gave great insight and was able to answer any questions. Very easygoing and friendly experience, would recommend!

Really interesting tour hosted by James who has an encyclopaedic knowledge, it seems, of his subject. It really helps that he is local to Belfast and grew up with The Troubles as his story telling has that authentic flavour. Thoroughly recommended.

We really recommend this tour. Very good summary of the history of Belfast. Gabriel is very neutral in telling the story of the troubles and was open about the issues nowadays that are still the results and consequences of the conflict. I’d liked the individual stories of people involved together with a good understanding of the history. Thanks a lot!
