About Belfast

Find out all about Belfast

  • Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, the second-largest on the island of Ireland. Belfast was granted city status in 1888.
  • Belfast was a centre of the Irish linen, tobacco processing, rope-making, and shipbuilding industries: in the early 20th century, Harland and Wolff, which built the RMS Titanic, was the world’s biggest and most productive shipyard.
  • Belfast played a key role in the Industrial Revolution and was a global industrial centre until the latter half of the 20th century. It has sustained a major aerospace and missiles industry since the mid 1930s. Industrialisation and the inward migration it brought made Belfast Ireland’s biggest city at the beginning of the 20th century.
  • Today, Belfast remains a centre for industry, as well as the arts, higher education, business, and law, and is the economic engine of Northern Ireland.
