  • directions_boat Worldwide

Join me on this 2-hour walking tour of historic Ballymena. Known as the City of the Seven Towers and also as the Gateway to the Glens of Antrim, Ballymena is just 15 miles from the Causeway Coastal Route, close to iconic Game of Thrones filming locations and a stone's throw from Slemish mountain where St Patrick tended sheep whilst a slave. Hear the story of the Seven Towers, tales of feudal lordships, of deals with the devil, the headless horseman, of ancient monastic settlements, the rebels of 1798, along with the more recent history of this busy market town and popular shopping destination.

Remaining planned tour dates are:

The tours run from 11.00am - 1.00pm.

Please note that booking is essential.
