Built in 1921, the Parliament Building in northeast Belfast is the official seat of the Northern Ireland Assembly. Its architect Sir Arnold Thornley added many symbolic touches to the building's design, such as the six pillars each representing a county of Northern Ireland, and its length of 365 feet standing for a foot per day of the calendar year. During the Assembly recesses through the summer, and at Easter and Halloween, it's possible to take a free guided tour of the hallowed halls. As one of the country's most beautiful buildings, we strongly recommend a visit to this wonderful building to find out about the history and discover the stunning architecture for yourself.
