To start your tour, EscapeWizard.com recommends stopping by the dock where the Titanic was built. The Titanic is, arguably, the most famous ship that has ever sailed, and it was built in the shipyard in the Queens Island Sector of Belfast. On April 10, 1912, the Titanic sailed from Southampton heading for New York with 2,200 souls on board. Four days later the largest transatlantic passenger steamship collided with and iceberg and sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean; 1500 people died and only 700 survived the tragedy. Today, tourists can take walking tours of the dock and pump house where this ship was built. You can learn the stories behind the famous tale from the knowledgeable guides and locals.

EscapeWizard.com highly suggests making a stop to the War Memorial Building on Talbot Street. At this museum, the soldiers of World War I and II are honored. There are rotating exhibits throughout the year. The centerpiece of the museum is a stained glass window that was constructed as a memorial.

How can we possibly resist a sweet treat or seven? Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory is known throughout Ireland as one of the finest creators of hand made chocolate, fudge and other sweet delights. Candy made from 100 year old recipes are simply out of this world. Best part is, when you visit, you can watch them make each and every delectable morsel by hand. Let me tell you, that kind of love translates into each bite you take. No visit to Belfast is complete without paying Aunt Sandra’s a visit, and EscapeWiz-ard.com recommends this location.
