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.

Some Black Taxi here and a parked bus or can that up there, leaving a few tourists to take a few pictures, leave a message written on the wall and come back up quickly. The wall fell in Berlin, but there remain those of the capital of Northern Ireland, so raised as the Gaza Strip; in the United Kingdom, not in the West Bank, Korea or Kuwait, in old Europe.
