Love this feature of east Belfast. Went for a skate with my 10 year old daughter on a beautiful Saturday evening and enjoyed the relaxed vibe.
Very impressed with my visit. Have stopped many times for coffee and or bunch on a Sunday while catching up with family and friends. Lovely atmosphere.
The children and I were in the area for a meeting so I thought I would surprise them with a picnic lunch in the square; they were pleased to dine next to the robin. The square is in an unassuming location that you will not notice from the busy main road, but is like a small oasis tucked behind the hubub of the city. The children had fun following the map they were given around the park to find all of the characters and learn more about each one. The final stop was the library where they borrowed copies of the Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe to read at home. My children are looking forward to returning to the square for another picnic when we are in the area again.
This public square is one of my highlights of Belfast! A fitting tribute to legendary author C.S. Lewis, who was a native of the city. Witnessing the life-size statues of his timeless characters from The Chronicles of Narnia series was truly a sight to behold (especially Aslan, as you can tell from my photos). It would take an incredible amount of timing and detail to get something like this right, and you delivered. Thanks to Belfast for honoring one of your own in such a beautiful day. It's an inspiration to us all.
I wish in the future it is going to have a bit of the Narnia spirit. I think an Latern would fit perfectly.
Great sculpture artworks based on The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. Great starting point for local cycling networks.
My wee son loved great safe place to walk round. And 2 lovely places to eat in. Next time we bringing his bike
Tucked in behind a main road, opposite a franchise of McDonald's is this magical area. Anyone who has read 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' by C S Lewis will appreciate this public space. Aslan is there, as is the White witch, the fawn, and other much loved figures from the book. There is even a robin, harder to find (unless you have a guide map). In good weather this would be a perfect place for a picnic, or a photo opportunity.
Nice stop off during the hop on hop off tour of Belfast. Nice visitor center does a great chorizo sausage roll and coffee.
Great place in East Belfast to reflect on the work of an amazing writer. It's situated at the Holywood Arches. Very easily located. If you can find the McDonald's on the Newtownards Road, just cross to the opposite side of the Newtownards Road and you'll see the painting of the white witch on the wall, which is followed by a path to all the different sculptures. You'll need to check out the whole area, including the bottom of the Holywood road if you are looking for The Searcher sculpture. It's all very close together. Not difficult to find. I'm from Northern Ireland and I enjoy visiting there occasionally.
Statues are wonderful...and right next door At Eastside Visitors Centre you will find yourself in an incredible eclectic environment, wonderful attentive Staff, dog friendly, great coffee, great food. Lovely building to drift through to get a deep sense of this side of Belfast City and buy some momentos
Nice to visit it. First time. A we bit of escapism away from the busy newtownards road.
Nice stop off during the hop on hop off your of Belfast. Nice visitor center does a great chorizo sausage roll and coffee.
It was nice and very relaxing atmosphere.. Good and friendly staff..
What a lovely place. Busy always something going on cycling, Skateboarding and if you wait you'll see a lovely dog skateboarding as well. Start at the searcher and explore the beautiful story of The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. If You call into Jacks cafe for a coffee you can pick up a map that will give you a hint of a wonderful story wrote by are very own author C S Lewis. This is a magical place to let your imagination run wild. A must for a visit in East Belfast.
Definitely an improvement in the area, paying tribute to a great Belfast man. Some sort of plaquette to tell the story or at least name the sculptures would be great
The cafe is cool and has public toilets as well as super friendly staff. The sculptures are interesting and it's nice a homage to CS Lewis exists. If you're into CS Lewis, you should check it out.
This is a lovely place where I spent a half hour when I had some time to kill. There is a nice little café and the statues outside are very nice, you'll especially love this if you're a fan of the Narnia series. In particular the second book.
