A one-day walking tour on Saturday 12 October, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm

Nineteenth century South Belfast was the town's first major prestigious suburb. The urban elite leapfrogged from their central Georgian terraces to the leafy Malone Ridge clustering closely to Queen's College Belfast (later Queen's University Belfast). The area became a showcase for the best public and residential architecture. Who were the builders and what were the best examples of their work?   Using the term ‘builder' to include architects, construction firms and developers we start at Queen's University main entrance and then walk from Mount Charles to the Malone and Stranmillis Roads junction, visiting examples of their work.  During the walk there will be a lunch opportunity.
