  • Had a lovely walk round this area taking in the sights, bridges, the Wier, and other surrounds. Very pleasant time here.  more »
  • The Lagan Weir is located along the river Lagan. Its construction was an initiative of the Council of the city of Belfast and cost the equivalent of £14 million. This walkway was opened in 1994. The total length of the runway is 120 m. The width of the runway varies along the length and reaches 8 m at widest point. The total tonnage of structural steel for this project amounted to 270 tons. It is without doubt a catwalk full of charm!

  • It is lovely to walk alongside the river and end up at this place. You have really nice views of the river and part of the harbor. It is specially beautiful at sunset.  more »

  • A newly refurbished walkthrough bridge that provides a scenic link between Belfast city centre and the SSE Arena.
  • The new Lagan Weir Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge was officially opened on 30 June 2015. It was still under construction when I visited the city in 2015 but this year I got the opportunity to use and photograph it. I must admit that I was impressed. Much better than the old bridge that it replaced.
  • Love this area of Belfast. The new footbridge is such a welcome addition. More of this please Belfast!
  • An integral part of the city it controls the tidal flow of the River Lagan
  • Elegant modern footbridge with good photo opportunities on clear days.
