    Worth the visit
    It's a must for the Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe fans. All the statues are beautifully crafted and it's a joy to find them all. Its a lesser known spot, but it's worth a visit if you are in the area. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in the area. Worth a visit 😊

    Narnia’s trail
    The square features seven bronze sculptures from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, including Aslan, the White Witch, and Mr Tumnus. C.S. Lewis Square is located in East Belfast beside the EastSide Visitor Centre. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So if you are a fan of classic literature, C.S. Lewis Square should be one of the best things to do in Belfast for you! There’s a free car parking and you can leave your car there and walk around. We were looking for Aunt’s Sandra Candy’s factory and discover Narnia’s trail.

    Quick stop
    Quick stop to see the statues. There's places to sit outside on a nice day, but otherwise there isn't too much here. There's easy parking nearby and we tried to eat at the nearby Lamppost Cafe but sadly it was closed!

    I could not stop smiling
    As someone who read the Narnia series probably once a year from the time I was seven to the time I was seventeen, and probably once every five years since then.... going to the C. S. Lewis Square made my little "I secretly still believe in magic" heart so, so very happy. And I'm not the only one - someone before me had put those fresh flowers on Mr. Tumnus, and there was a girl walking her dog through the park and the dog stopped and barked at the White Witch for about two whole minutes. Magic might be real, in Ireland.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

East Belfast has done it's best to celebrate one of its greatest sons and those who are Narnia geeks or Lewis aficionados will want to visit the Square. But much more could be done to highlight Lewis, his work and legacy... And simply make it more of a genuine attraction.

There are buses that get you there from downtown (we walked there but was quite a walk). We visited at night so not enough light for pictures but the statues were very cool as well as the several murals around the plaza with the same theme as the statues.

There was nothing to do except look at the statues of Narnoans. It was wet, and the Jack cafe had nothing of value and was a terrible tribute to a great writer

I love reading CS Lewis books and wanted to see the Narnia characters. Easy to find if you take the glider bus from the city

Great fun looking at the statues and remembering the books. Good for about an hour. We were too early for the coffee shop, but it looked nice

Nice park for a walk about. Not too big. Statues are pretty cool photo opportunities. Would recommend for families or couples. Would not recommend for walking a dog.
