Belfast Welcome Centre To Be Relocated

Belfast's main tourist office is be relocated to a more 'appropriate' site at a cost of over £1.5 million.

The Belfast Welcome Centre, run by Belfast City Council, currently occupies the first floor of a building in Donegall Place but the council have approved its relocation.

It is understood that the centre, that gives information about Belfast's tourism scene, will move to a new ground floor location at a building in Donegall Square which, previously housed a branch of the Northern Bank.

The building, to which the centre is moving to, will require a complete refit in order to house the centre and it is thought the move will cost approximately £1.62m.

The council said a ground floor site was more appropriate for a tourist centre and is hoping the Northern Ireland Tourist Board will help fund the project.
