City Centre

in Ireland. In 1888, the Linen Hall Library purchased its present building at 17 - 19 Donegall Square North and today it houses one of the most renowned collections of Irish material in the world.
May Street Presbyterian Church is situated to the south of the City Hall. This magnificent Georgian church has been in continuous use since it opened in 1829. It is an elegant and well proportioned building, a handsome example of the Presbyterian taste for the solidly classical.
The view from here down Chichester Street leads one's eye to the Waterfront Hall, 1997, one of the architectural stars of the city, a splendid, glass fronted concert hall, which at night appears to float on the River Lagan on whose bank it stands.
The commercial and trading needs of Belfast were well served by another of its landmark buildings - St. George's Market on Oxford Street. For over 100 years, St. George's Market has been an established feature of everyday life in Belfast. When first built, it was the supermarket of its day, a place where people from all around came to buy eggs, butter, poultry, fruit and vegetables. Today it is one of the city's most vibrant retail, cultural and conferencing venues and visitors are welcome to its weekly food markets.
