  • Visited here as part of the European Heritage Open Day 2016. Was great to learn about the history of this building which contains some interesting features, would certainly be a great spot to come to study or just have a read. The exterior really grabs your attention as you make your way up the hill. The exhibition space upstairs has some history on the buildings around Belfast, which is worth a look.
