Linen Hall Library. Over the years we've hosted thousands of interested walkers.
The reason we do these tours is because the literature of Belfast is important and shouldn't moulder on the shelves of libraries. To hear the words of authors on the streets where they lived and worked, allows us new ways of understanding the work, and the city which inspired them. We make no argument that Belfast is a Dublin or Paris, but it has a literature to be proud of, one which deserves to be heard.
We feature many writers on the tour, but the most popular are:
Seamus Heaney (yes, he's from Derry, but he found his voice here honestly)
Robert McClaim Wilson
Its a stroll through a city you might not know, hearing words you might not forget
