Mary Ann McCracken’s Belfast Walking Tour

Experience Mary Ann McCracken’s Belfast, as you walk in the footsteps of this remarkable abolitionist, philanthropist and social reformer. Mary Ann McCracken, who was born over 250 years ago, is intrinsically linked to the city of Belfast.  She lived her fearless life championing causes, moving from place to place, always on a mission to make life better for those less fortunate than herself.

This walking tour takes in the locations linked to her life, her endeavours and that of her family. You will be led by an experienced guide through the same streets she walked over 200 years before. This new walking tour starts at Clifton House, where Mary Ann’s thirst for philanthropic causes first began, and where her impact can still be seen today, and finishes near Belfast City Hall.

The Mary Ann McCracken Walking Tour, takes place on a regular basis ( Fridays at 2pm, and Saturdays at 10am) from March-October. Booking is essential – use the tickets button below.
