The history of Belfast begins at Clifton House! Now, through the use of world class immersive technology, from the moment you step through our door you will be transported back in time to the Belfast Poor House – opened in 1774 – which provided sanctuary to thousands of people, from the young and old, to local citizens and passing sailors, throughout the years.

Check below for details of any upcoming tours. Please note that our walking tours and house and graveyard tours take a break for the winter, but will return in February 2023.

We also facilitate private group tours for organisations or schools. Visit our External Talks and Tours page to make an enquiry.


As well as our listings below, all our tours can be booked via the Visit Belfast website.
