I can recall Cornmarket being the central location for people to congregate. There was a grand bandstand which has now given way to the Spirit of Belfast sculpture. It’s still a focal point and the heart beat of the city.

I really liked this area of central Belfast. I enjoyed wandering around the lanes, watching buskers sing, and doing some shopping. It also had some nice places to have a drink.

Good place to meet or sit and watch people go by. I'm not thrilled with the artwork in the middle but, presumably lots of people love it. For me, the old bandstand was better. There are plenty of buskers in the area and there's the...More
