This tour takes 2 hours and covers just over 2kms. You will spend the first hour walking through Belfast's oldest streets as you head into the lost Dockers community of Sailortown, telling you about how it emerged and why it disappeared. During these 2 hours I will share an alternative side of Belfast, which is definitely not one seen by most visitors or even locals.
Other things to note
This walk is a relaxed, informal stroll through the city but guests should ensure they're wearing appropriate footwear and bring a suitable coat/umbrella if rain is likely.

I have been providing a unique Walking Tour experience in Belfast for several years. Taking you off the beaten track to the lost Dockers community of Sailortown through Belfast's oldest streets. I am passionate about visitors seeing an alternative side of Belfast. Being able to share this unique and largely unknown history and place with others brings me huge satisfaction; it's an area of Belfast rich in experiences, characters and events. The lost Dockers Community was the backbone upon which this City was built, becoming an Industrial powerhouse on a global scale. Let me share it with you.

A walk around some of the lesser known streets of Belfast - a mix of industrial history, social upheaval, and macro environmental forces.

Es war eine tolle Tour. Wir habe ein anderes Belfast kennengelernt, dass wir uns selber nie hätten erschließen können. Durch seine gute Vernetzung konnten wir spontan eine stillgelegt Kirche besichtigen, in der uns mit großem Enthusiasmus die Leiterin der Bürgerinitiative über den “Kampf” um den Erhalt und die weitere Verwendung der Kirche berichtete.

Richard is very passionate about the places he is showing and his tour is off the beaten track. We learned a lot about Belfast's past and people. It was an interesting mix of history, social and political city development. We would have never found the places on our own. We definitely recommend his tour.

A fantastic and insightful tour of Belfast city centre and the old Sailortown district. Richard starts off in Belfast city centre and really paints a vivid picture of the city in its early days, when it consisted of rivers, ports, docks and winding streets. I could really see myself back in time. You'll end up Sailortown which is mostly an empty industrial zone now, but with great pointers to gems that the area still offers, and with lots of helpful pointers on where to find out more. This tour would be of interest to Belfast tourists or residents, and even as a local history buff it covered lots of stuff I didn't know. Richard is clear and easy to understand, and very approachable with any questions or comments.

This is a great historical tour - Richard really brings the past to life. Much of Sailortown has disappeared, but he makes it feel real and vivid with a real passion for his subject. He touched briefly on the Troubles - there are plenty of tours that cover that aspect of Belfast life, but the main focus of this tour is the diversity of people who made Belfast a great ship building centre, from the first boatyard to the builders who built the ships and the dockers who loaded and unloaded them . It covers a period of about 250 years. You will definitely see a side to Belfast you would miss otherwise. The next day we went to City Hall - without this tour, a lot of the information displayed in the City Hall experience would not have been as relevant. Richard is laconic, friendly and really knowledgeable. He conveys the information in an engaging and interesting way. He was also really patient - I have issues with my back and my husband with his legs, but he led the tour at a pace we could both manage. Highly recommended.
