Belfast City Hospital
Talks & Ideas

Following on from previous years we have again teamed up with the Northern Ireland Tourist Guide Association to bring you a series of cultural and interesting walking tours. The best way to explore the city is by foot and, with highly knowledgeable professional guides leading the way, you’ll experience a whole other side to Belfast.

This Belfast history walking tour gives a broad overview of the city’s medical history. It tells of the first hospital in Belfast; Victorian anti-vaxers; tea mania causing ‘insanity’; the detrimental impact of eating sewage polluted sea food and how working in the linen mills could wreck your lungs, rot your feet and cut off your arm.
