Whether you have expensive tastes or get your retail thrills from grabbing a bargain, Victoria Square Shopping Centre offers something to suit you. This bustling mall is at the heart of Belfast’s main shopping district. Head here to find everything you need to fill a whole day, from great shopping to entertainment and eating options. Make sure you bring a camera so you can capture the gorgeous views of Belfast that are visible through the building’s glass roof.
Come to the mall on a weekday morning to beat the weekend rush. Spend a few hours browsing the many different stores that fill its four levels. Pick up gifts for friends and family back home and browse the department store House of Fraser. Treat yourself to some new clothes or shoes at stores such as Calvin Klein, H&M, Michael Kors, Urban Outfitters and many more. Find many of your favorite international brands housed here, as well as U.K. ones that may be new to you.
Stop for lunch at a restaurant or café in the mall’s extensive food hall. This is one of the best places in Belfast to just sit and see people going about their daily business.
When you are finished with shopping, head to the Odeon. This is the mall’s popular eight-screen movie theater. Find all the latest blockbusters showing here all through the week. Each day, the screenings begin with kid-friendly matinees.
Victoria Square Shopping Centre itself is open every day, though public holidays may impact the hours. Come on a clear afternoon to make the most of the incredible panoramic vistas visible through the mall’s “Dome.” This striking glass roof stands out on the Belfast skyline for miles around. Ascend to the viewing platform in the center of the mall to be treated to an astounding bird’s-eye view of this beautiful city.
