Due to the latest announcement by the NI Executive, we have made the decision to change the date of the trail to end on the 23rd December.

Explore Belfast City Centre safely this festive season with the kids and take on the challenge of spotting the colourful Gingerbread House-themed Christmas props in the windows of local businesses on Belfast One’s magical free outdoor Christmas Trail.

Suitable for the whole family, the trail will run from Friday 11 December – Wednesday 23 December with the following timings:

  • Monday – Saturday: 9am – 5pm
  • Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & Boxing Day: Closed.

Download the Belfast Christmas Trail, starting at McDonalds and make your way around the City, being sure to keep your eyes open so you don’t miss the candy canes and gingerbread characters and fairy houses! Please ensure you have available data on your phone. 

Find all 10 props by answering a question at each location point for your chance to WIN a £250 Belfast City Centre Gift Card!

By following the trail, families will uncover magical Fairy Houses along the way before discovering 3 special Santa Post boxes, where children can send their own letter to the North Pole! Listen out for Santa on Cool FM’s Breakfast Show to see if your little one’s letter is read out.

Head into Starbucks stores at CastleCourt, Victoria Square or Castle Lane and tell staff there you’re taking part in this magnificent trail by showing them the webpage to claim your golden chocolate coin* (while stocks last).

You can find out the participating businesses opening hours here.
