Titanic is a museum that is all about the history of a particular ship- you guessed it, Titanic! Situated on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard beside the Titanic Slipways, it is the very place where the infamous ship was designed, built, and launched. The eight-story building was designed by Eric Kuhne and its exterior is made to resemble the shape of ships, with its 3,000 individual silver anodised aluminium shards and angular forms. Whereas, the interior of the building is made up of a number of wide spaces that house a series of interpretive galleries exploring aspects of the construction, design, sinking, and legacy of Titanic.
Belfast Cathedral serves two separate dioceses and as a result has two bishop’s seats. The building is a treasure trove of decorative elements and historic pieces. Tourists flock to this architectural gem to visit the Tomb of Lord Carson, the Titanic Pall, and the Spire of Hope. Listening to classical music while sitting surrounded by the cathedral’s Romanesque features is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Where better to reintroduce yourself to some of the greatest music of all time than at a venue showcasing the past, present, and future? Designed in Classical Revival style by James Cumming Wynnes, the museum houses art and history collections. The impressive building is located within the surroundings of Belfast’s Botanic Gardens. Sit back and relax in the candlelit setting and prepare to amaze as the talented musicians serenade you with awe-inspiring songs.
Surrounded by sprawling woodland and caves, this Belfast landmark offers breathtaking and unobstructed views over the city. The stunning building that we know now as Belfast Castle was first constructed in the 1860s but this hilltop has been the site of many Belfast Castles dating back to the medieval period. This grand venue will look even more beautiful illuminated by the flickering light of hundreds of candles.
The Candlelight series has been lighting up Belfast for a while now. From the plush interior of The Belfast Empire Music Hall to Belfast Cathedral’s stunning arches, you’ll find yourself enraptured by more than the magical music. Make your way to a historic venue in the city for an unforgettable evening out with family, friends, a special someone or enjoy your own company.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
