Free tours around Belfast Met's College Square East Building before they head east to Titanic Quarter

For the next fortnight there's an opportunity to explore the old Technical College in College Square East. Belfast Metropolitan College (Belfast Met) moves across to its new premises in Titanic Quarter in the autumn, so this will be one of the last chances to see around the historic building before it is locked up.

Historian Henry V Bell will conduct the lunchtime tours taking in the architectural and historical features of the building that has been educating people in Belfast for well over 100 years. Apparently there's even a working steam engine in the building, though you'll have to go on the tour to find out more!

Tours start at noon, 18-22 July and 25-27 July. Turn up at the college.

It's rather a fine building though, regrettably, the cuckoo in the nest of College Square, having impeded the aestetics and prospect from erstwhile residences around the Square!
