A new 'pop-up' store aimed at tourists in Belfast's Linen Quarter has opened on Bedford Street.

Linenopolis, located opposite the new Grand Central Hotel, provides an insight to the social, economic and cultural history of the city's linen industry.

It's described as the first ever visitor experience store on the island of Ireland wholly dedicated to linen. Story boards, images and artefacts highlighting the city's linen heritage, sit alongside the wares of 33 leading linen entrepreneurs, including Katie Larmour, Mourne Textiles, Flax Fox, 31 Chapel Lane and Placed Ireland.
