Unfortunately this once lovely building has fallen into melancholy. It could and should be much more, albeit even a backdrop for photos. Alas the money isn't there and it looks sad!!

I am giving this attraction 5 stars because it needs to be seen but, because of its condition, many reviewers would be inclined it one or two stars at best and I cannot name them. I have visited this location a number of times over a five year period in order to see Transport House rather than the Albert Memorial... More

This building is a bit of an eye sore. It has been boarded up for over a year now and really should be pulled down- it really is a blot on the landscape, terrible architecture!!!

This building was built in 1959, and can be located on High Street, just opposite the Albert Clock. In it's day, it probably was a fine building, but at the moment it's boarded up, and is an eye-sore in a lovely city. It is one of Northern Ireland's youngest listed buildings, and it reminds me a bit of "Liberty Hall"... More

Artistically I do like the gigantic picture on this building. It is made of tiles, and shows a ship, a plane, cranes, and rows of workers. Belfast used to be a manufacturing town, and this is a trade union headquarters. The picture is fantastically stylised, all sharp angles. All at once it celebrates modern industrial strength, but that row of... More
