Belfast hailed ‘must see’ destination by National Geographic travel mag
Belfast has been hailed as a 'must see' destination in a seven-page article in the latest UK edition of National Geographic Traveller magazine.
The publication profiled the city to almost 43,000 readers under the headline 'City Life Belfast'.
Journalist Pat Riddell and photographer Chris Copeland were invited by Tourism Ireland to visit Belfast in June, resulting in the article appearing in the November edition of the magazine.
The article highlights some of the many things to see and do in the city, including food and literature tours, the Titanic Quarter and Belfast’s unique street art.
It says that “with its creative, entrepreneurial streak bubbling underneath, Belfast’s revitalisation as one of the UK’s most vibrant cities is rewarding visitors with warmth and pride”.
There are also lots of colourful photos of places like St George’s Market, OX Belfast, the Crown bar and street art murals.
Julie Wakley, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Great Britain, said: “We are delighted with the excellent coverage.
"It’s a great way of showcasing Belfast to a large audience of potential visitors – helping us to spread the word about what a great city it is to visit and what makes a holiday in Northern Ireland unique and truly memorable."
