The fascinating story of cave Hill, Belfast Castle and the Cave Hill Country Park is told in the newly refurbished Cave Hill visitor Centre. New displays provide an insight into the past, and a flavour of the present...
The Centre is divided into four separate rooms. One room tells the story of people on the hill, from Stone Age up to current times; another looks at the natural setting, views both of and from the hill, geology and wildlife. A compact audio visual room shows an 8 minute presentation entitled 'Watching Over Belfast', the story of Belfast Castle and Cave Hill, while the fourth room has been set up as a 1920s style bedroom where a bride-to-be prepares for her wedding. A collection of photographs illustrates the changing fashions in weddings at the castle since 1940s to the present day.
The Cave Hill Visitors Centre is now open free of charge to all. It is sited on the second floor of Belfast Castle and can be visited at any time between 9:00am and 10:00pm Monday to Saturday, and 9:00am to 6:00pm Sunday.
