Clifton House opened in 1774 as the original Poor House for the town of Belfast. As the first public building in North Belfast, we have been part of the community for over 245 years.

During our tours of Clifton House many people tell us about the photographs they have of family events from weddings and christenings taken in the grounds of Clifton House, to those who had relatives who lived or worked in Clifton House. Now, we would like to encourage people to send in any photographs, memories or stories associated with Clifton House.
