This three hours tour will allow visitors to visit both the nationalist republican Falls Road area with its spectacular murals on the world famous International Wall, and the unionist loyalist Shankill road, as well as the mural marking the historic hunger strike of 1981 which is dominated by the character and persona of Bobby Sands. Each leg of the tour will be guided by a former political prisoner from the area. This tour allows the visitor to see the British/Irish conflict from several perspectives, learning about everyday life in both communities. The joint Falls and Shankill political tour is an exploration of both republican and loyalist perspectives. It is also a personal tour because both guides will have played and keep playing a role for their community. This tour is perfect for those seeking to understand the roots of the recent phase of the British/Irish conflict and how it still impacts today’s life in Belfast.
