Starting at Belfast city hall (we meet at the front gates of City Hall in Donegall Square North) and finishing by the Beacon of Hope beside the river Lagan, the tour visits 7 locations in the city centre where major events occurred during the conflict.

We start with a short introduction to Irish / British history and why the Troubles start in the late 1960’s. Over the course of 1.5 miles and 2 hours and 15 minutes we then tell the stories of each site; what happened and why, who was involved, and the effect these attacks had on the city and its people, affecting nearly every part of our daily lives.

We also demonstrate the impact of the peace process; you will witness the social and cultural regeneration of the city as we walk through the Cathedral Quarter and waterfront areas where you will also see some of the street art that demonstrates our newfound vibrant culture.

Throughout the tour we use visual aids with images of the Troubles and the places we visit from the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s to help you envisage the realities of life then compared to now.

The tour is factual and historically accurate to ensure it is unbiased and non-partisan, but we also weave our own stories into the tour to bring our history to life for you.

There is also time built into the tour to ensure that questions are encouraged from guests and that our answers are meaningful.

We are Mark Wylie, Paul ‘Donzo’ Donnelly and James Ellson, conflict historians with qualifications in Irish History, Politics and Anthropology. We were all born in Belfast in the 1960's, (in the year the Troubles began!).

We have worked extensively in teaching, mediation work with interface communities and ex-combatants, and Victims & Survivors groups, and of course as tour guides.

We began giving tours to visitors in 2013. We are immensely proud of our city and this is reflected in what we do. Our ‘A History of Terror’ Belfast city walking tour was Highly Commended at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards in 2019 and is the only ‘peace and reconciliation’ or ‘political history’ tour to receive a 5 star rating by Tourism Northern Ireland. Paul was named 'Top UK Tour Guide' at the Wanderlust World Guide Awards in 2019.

Steve was a fantastic guide, who covered the history of the conflict in Belfast in an engaging, thorough, and easily comprehended way. I appreciated the specific stories, which really illuminated the impact of the conflict on the people and places of Belfast. I knew a good bit about the conflict already but some of my friends on the tour did not, and we all agreed that whether or not we came to the tour with prior knowledge, Steve provided us a wealth of new information. In other words, the tour was accessible and interesting regardless how much we already knew about the history. The earpieces were also wonderful - I wish every walking tour in the world would use them!

Really informative tour, looking into the history of the troubles in the city’s past. You could tell James is really knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Belfast. Also appreciate that we could bring our dog along on the tour.

Not usually one for walking tours but would highly recommend this one. Engaging and detailed, led by a knowledgeable guide who was able and happy to field all of the questions the group asked.

A wonderful couple of hours spent getting a full 800 year history of Ireland's and specifically Belfast's history and politics. Steve our guide was excellent and so knowledgable. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a thorough but accessible introduction to Belfast and the Troubles.
