What a wonderful opportunity to discover a little bit of Korea in the city of Belfast.

After the success of our previous walking tours, we are back by popular demand. This time, we explore the city of Belfast to commemorate the outbreak of the Korean War that began on the 25 June 1950.

In partnership with the Korean Tourism Organisation, we invite you to take a tour of the city of Belfast and introduce Korean culture. We also explore the history and friendly relationship between the UK and Korea, through key historic sites.

During the outbreak of the war, the ship, HMS Belfast, played a crucial role and supportive role of the South Korean and United Nations forces on land.

The walking tour will begin at 10 am and finish at 12:30 in the afternoon.

Our expert Belfast Blue Badge guide Silvia Ballocchi will introduce the best spots to discover Korean culture, from the Belfast City Hall’s Korean War Memorial, to St. George’s Market.

As we will be travelling to all locations on foot, we advise those who would like to take part, to come full of energy and with appropriate footwear. Some refreshments will be provided on the way.
