Maritime Milestones: A year of anniversaries
We’ve been to many great events and spent a lot of time in the Titanic Quarter and on the Maritime Mile. Only last month we hopped on a Belfast Bike and went on an adventure from the Big Fish right up to the Dry Dock and back, checking out the new SoundYard sculpture, the refurbished Odyssey, Titanic Belfast, the Great Light and a lot more. There’s always something happening on the Maritime Mile!
This year there are a number of milestone anniversaries happening along the route and to celebrate this a year of activities has been announced called Maritime Milestones.
Maritime Milestones aims to encourage us all to enjoy Belfast’s waterfront experience through a range of anniversaries, events, heritage and international days animating Belfast’s waterfront.
