The first impression is one of sheer grandure. The main drive is exactly a mile long and it does not disappoint. There's a brief security check (common to most government buildings) and visitors are welcomed through the main entrance. Great photo opportunities here! The tour takes in the foyer and the two chambers. You learn about the architecture, the history... More

The handy way to visit was via the Hop on Hop Off bus, if you get the timings right. The tour is one hour long and is a very chatty approach with some interesting insights. The building is most impressive inside and the grounds lovely. Was annoyed with myself in not realising the dining room was open to visitors- just... More

Living locally to Stormont Estate, I have made good use of the grounds over tbe years. The grounds have great walking areas, bike trails, forest areas, an outdoor gym and even a playpark. The outside of the Buildings themselves are stunning and stand up to any parliment building worldwide! I had never been inside the Buildings so today I went... More

In 2005 I visited Northern Ireland and stayed in Newtonards at the Stormont Hotel just across the road from the Parliament gates. One of our favorite things was to stroll through the gardens and grounds of the Parliament. A lovely place with a beautiful view from the top steps of the Parliament building of Prince of Wales avenue.

We had a superb tour of Stormont, led by Briege. The tour lasted an hour and was so interesting as you could sit in both chambers. We also had lunch in the members dining room which was absolutely amazing, such a good standard of food and service. Main courses are £10.50 and as good as any high end restaurant. The... More

Special Mention for anyone visiting Belfast soon. The Members Dining Room has opened to the Public because we have found ourselves in the middle of an Election. This gives you a chance to dine where our MP's have there lunch, its only recently been opened to the public during the summer/xmas breaks but if visiting Belfast soon then check availability...

If you take the 'Long walk' up Prince of Wales Drive, from the gateway to Stormont Parliament Building, due to the elevation difference between the gate and Stormont, it may feel you are taking 'high ground'? After passing through security, establish a'beachhead'to recover before proceeding, after you have established where the official'public'tours start from? You may get involved in a'private'... More

When you see Stormont on the news, the parliament building always takes centre stage. While this imposing building is a big draw, the grounds surrounding it are the best reason to pay a visit. There is a variety of walking trails through the forestry on the site to suit all abilities. The walk up Prince of Wales Avenue, the long... More
