Belfast tourist centre's move around corner

Belfast's main tourist office is to move to another location at a cost of approximately £1.62m.

The Belfast Welcome Centre, run by Belfast City Council, currently occupies the first floor of a building in Donegall Place but is moving into a new ground floor location at Donegall Square, which previously housed a branch of the Northern Bank.

It is understood its new home will require a refit and comes at a time of swift trade at the tourist information centre which has been “queued out” by foreigners attracted by the 100th anniversary Titanic commemorations.

The council said a ground floor site was more appropriate for a tourist centre. It is hoped the Northern Ireland Tourist Board will meet half the cost of the move, with ratepayers picking up the remaining cost.
