The history of Belfast began in 1613 AD, when King James I awarded a Royal Charter to confer the status of Belfast town. At that time, the residents were mainly Englishmen, Scots, and Manxmen.

In 1888, Belfast's population, economy, and heavy industry grew rapidly, so it was upgraded from a town to a city. In 1921, it became the capital of Northern Ireland. Historically, Belfast's textile, tobacco, and shipbuilding industries have been well developed, and the Titanic / Titanic was built here. In the early 20th century, Belfast's shipbuilding industry was the world's largest producer.

However, from 1968 to 1998, during the Northern Ireland issue (The Troubles), a long period of civil war and violent conflict led to the economic shutdown of Belfast until the Northern Ireland government signed a Belfast Agreement with the Irish and British governments Later, peace was restored in Northern Ireland. Nowadays, it is the political and economic center of Northern Ireland, an important educational town and a tourist city.

The tall trees blocked the sunlight and formed a dark avenue, so they were called "dark hedges".

Many people will arrange the scene itinerary and Giant's Causeway as a day trip. The Giant's Causeway formed dense lava columns due to ancient volcanic eruptions. The spectacular scene is known as one of the top ten wonders in the world.
