Belfast is a thriving city with many indoor and outdoor family activities for babies, toddlers and children as well as excellent schools, colleges and a University.
It's a city surrounded by beautiful countryside, green hillsides and rugged coastlines for exciting family adventures.
Inside the city there are regular groups & classes in the libraries, local churches, specialist children's centres and leisure centres.
There are four cultural ‘quarters' of Belfast; the Cathedral Quarter, hosting an annual arts festival of the same name; the Titanic Quarter, home to the birthplace of the infamous Titanic and to the Odyssey complex; the Queen's Quarter, named after Queens University and home to the Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens, and hosting the annual Belfast Festival at Queens; and the Gaeltacht Quarter, promoting and encouraging the use of the Irish language. In all quarters of the city you will find events, activities, shops and exciting history to discover.
On September 27th 2015 Belfast will host the world's first BabyDay - a day of celebration, connection and inspiration with lots of different organisations creating imaginative experiences for babies on that day. Babyday is more than a fun day out – it's also about hope, about the wonder of seeing the world through a child's eyes… it's a day for all of us, with or without a baby!
