Queens University

Queen’s University Motto

“Pro tanto quid retribuamus (For so much, what shall we give back?)”

Queen’s University Belfast – a great way to pass a few hours having a walk around. Right at the heart of Queen’s Quarter, one of Belfast’s four cultural areas – this imposing building really is worth a visit.

For those with a love of poetry and literature, Seamus Heaney was a student and the poet Philip Larkin worked as a librarian here in the 50’s. Hollywood actor, Liam Neeson also attended – the list of famous and notable names is endless.

Stop 12 on the City Sightseeing tour drops you right outside, where you can explore the Great Hall or the Lanyon Building. You can sit on a bench in the famous Quadrangle – read a book, or watch the world go by. It’s a perfect photo opportunity and a chance to soak up the history, architecture and culture of this great University. It’s easy to buy your tickets online here or you can get them on the bus.
