Why is Belfast great?
Belfast is home. It’s a city that welcomes you with open arms. From the moment you arrive, you’re a part of its community. It’s Northern Ireland’s capital city - over a third of all people living in Northern Ireland live in Belfast. It’s safe and quiet, yet buzzing with events and culture.
The Titanic was built right here in Belfast. You’ll find snippets of history across the city with castles, monasteries and incredible architecture. It’s surrounded by natural beauty too, including Northern Ireland’s dramatic coastline with beautiful beaches to explore.
On a budget? You’ll be able to make the most of it in Belfast. It has the lowest cost of living in the UK (Mercer 2014). Want to travel to other areas of the UK? Its location means you can easily explore the rest of the UK by plane or ferry. You can be in London in just over an hour!
