Introduction to the Christmas Walk
As we enter December, we thought that some of you might enjoy photos of Belfast this Christmas, especially if you are unable to visit this year.
On a cold and increasingly very wet afternoon/ evening we walked around Joy’s Entry, Royal Avenue, the City Hall and across the Lagan to follow the Maritime Mile walk to the Titanic Building.
It’s probably fair to say that Covid and Storm Arwen have taken a toll on Belfast this year with fewer shoppers in town, fewer shops open and sections of Christmas lighting on some streets out of commission due to storm damage. However it was good to take in the Christmas atmosphere while undertaking a bit of festive shopping.
Our favourite of the old Belfast entries, Joy’s Entry always delivers a real feeling of its long history. The Christmas lights in the narrow entry are stunning and seem to be emerging as “selfie central”.
It’s good to see the abandoned Bank of Ireland building illuminated for Christmas at the junction of Royal Avenue and North Street.

Belfast City Hall
Belfast’s City Hall looks splendid as usual with the Christmas Continental Market in its grounds.
The Victoria Centre
The Victoria Centre was, as expected, lavishly decorated. A beautiful shopping experience.

Rounding off a, by now, very wet evening, we stop near the Duke of York in Commercial Court.
