With the countdown to Christmas now on, Belfast is a great place to be… and the perfect place to shop. Here at the Wellington Park Hotel, you can enjoy overnight accommodation in a classic double/twin room bed, full Irish breakfast the next day, secure overnight car parking, your first drink on us and midday check out, all from just £45 per person!
Moving in to the heart of the city, you will be able to savour the atmosphere and aromas of the popular Belfast Christmas Market, which will be returning on November 18th for its 12th year! The gates will be open every day for visitors to explore several countries from across Europe including Germany, Spain, France, Italy as well as a variety of local traders.
Once finished, head straight to the warmth and splendour of Victoria Square, the largest shopping centre in the city, with over 60 stores, including the largest House of Fraser in Europe, an Apple Store and many designer names which include, Michael Kors, Ted Baker, Kurt Geiger to name only a few.
While in the city centre you must not miss out on Belfast’s historic St George’s Market where you can find some the best food produce from across the Island of Ireland, conveniently located under the one roof. Named Best Market in the UK 2016 by the Observer newspaper, it is also great for arts and crafts, clothes and vinyl. The market takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with a unique theme each day.
If you want to discover something a bit different, a short walk up the Lisburn road might interest you. Only 10 minutes from the hotel, you can find a plethora of independent designer fashion and homeware boutiques, intermingled with some of the best restaurants and Coffee shops Belfast has to offer.
