Also, not in Belfast but thought it would be interesting from a built environment perspective, considering that redevelopment will happen one day... maybe!

Maze / Long Kesh
Tours on Sat and Sun. See here.



So much to do! When I tried to do out a timetable to get round as much as possible I realised that after doing all the tours there is very little time for the open buildings! It will be a packed weekend ... camera will be well charged!

What ones will you guys be going to?

Also, feel free to add interesting stuff for other areas of NI for people not in Belfast

I'm not sure if it's on this year, but the masonic hall in Cornmarket is very good. Most of the rooms in it are samey but you'll be surprised by how wealthy the organisation is. Stormont castle is alright as well, and you'll not get any other chance to go there. Nearby Netherleigh is alright if you're in the area.

Again I haven't looked at this years brochure but theyve been there in previous years
