This wall has become a 'must see' for visitors to Belfast. With an estimated 500,000 visitors per year, it provides the perfect canvas to challenge people's perception of the Shankill. It also showcases the rich history and heritage of the area and its community in the form of public art works that illustrate the social, industrial and cultural history of the Greater Shankill.

    If you visit Belfast and you want to learn the history about the people divided and the way that protestants and Catholics handle it then you have to make the Black taxi tour! I don't remember the nam...  more »

    Behind this rather positive term, in fact, is a wall that separates Catholic and Protestant communities. Sometimes the top of nearly 10 meters, it is interspersed with metal doors that can close quickly. Edifying.

    Lots of pictures, some professional and some graffiti, about Belfast's violent past. A guide would be very useful, because many texts and images won't be understood without good background.  more »

  • Took the kids down here - hoping when they are older, these walls will be gone! Who knows.....amazing to see all the signatures. Quiet street - much longer than I thought it would be - especially when out walking....loads of taxis stopping off with tourists telling them the stories of the wall. Then flip to the other side and more tough stories. No winners here - but good to remember the past , so it is not repeated....just need our politicians to move things on as well!
  • Went here on a black cab tour and it is definitely something to see if you're in Belfast. The history behind it and the current events surrounding the wall is very interesting, and it's incredible to see!
  • Such an interesting walk from downtown Belfast to the Peace Wall. Interesting to see all the art and the signatures. Heartbreaking to see the negative graffiti and the remnants of conflict and prejudice. I recommend the walk even though it might make some uncomfortable. That is how you will get a real feel for Belfast and it is safe!
  • If you haven't taken a black cab tour of the peace wall, you haven't been to Belfast. Educational and emotional.
  • It is something to see for what it was and still is now. But the history of it is so much more.
