Time is running out to cast your vote to decide on the top Seven Wonders Northern Ireland has to offer.

Belfast Telegraph readers have until Wednesday to decide which of the province’s greatest wonders comes out on top. Votes will then be considered alongside the choices of a panel of judges to provide the definitive Seven Wonders of Northern Ireland.

Whether it’s the fresh air and history of the north coast, the fresh sea food or the buzz of the city — our online poll will highlight the best the province has to offer. It may be our scenic wonders, such as the Mountains of Mourne or a trait among the people of Northern Ireland that makes us remarkable, such as our humour, our sense of community or love of home.

Voting is already tight among several notable areas across the province, with Glenariff Forest currently out in front in the top spot. Others in the running for the final list of seven include the Antrim Coast Road, Whitepark Bay and the friendliness of people across Northern Ireland.

The Giant’s Causeway has always been a popular choice for both tourists and locals alike — making it to third in the running for the Seven Wonders list.

Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter is in line for a spot, too.

Also in the running is the massive expanse of Lough Neagh, the Co Down village of Rostrevor, the beauty of the the magnificent Mourne Mountains, along with Strangford Lough.
