Hop on our bus for a narrated bus tour of the visible and invisible architectural remnants of “The Troubles” in Belfast.

This event takes an alternative tour through the city of Belfast, visiting a range of divisive architectural installations put in place by a confidential government security committee during ‘The Troubles', the period between 1969 and 1998 when the sectarian conflict in and about Northern Ireland was at its most extreme.

Quite distinct from Belfast’s obvious and widely recognised ‘peace walls’, these hidden barriers comprise everyday parts of the built environment such as shops, houses, factories, roads, and landscaping.

The tour travels to the north, east, and west of Belfast to reveal first-hand how these seemingly benign structures act as hidden peace walls between Catholic and Protestant communities, which enforce social and physical division in unseen and problematic ways.
