To experience the red route from start to finish catch one of the buses at Castle Place and venture into the city's east end. Along the way you might want to stop off at Titanic Belfast, an extremely popular attraction that explores the history of RMS Titanic. Alternatively, you could continue onto the HMS Caroline museum ship at stop 5. From the harbour district the tour heads towards the parliament building at Stormont.
After Stormont it's onto West Belfast, where you'll travel along the famous Falls and Shankill Roads. This area of the city harbours a number of interesting attractions, namely, Crumlin Road Gaol, the Shankill Memorial Garden, and the International War Murals.
Once the tour passes Clonard Monastery it winds its way south towards University Road. Here you can stop off and explore Queens University, the Botanic Gardens and the Ulster Museum. Be sure to spend a good bit time exploring the latter, whose amazing exhibits we've detailed here. You can then rejoin the tour and travel back into the city centre.
