Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster has officially opened the new Visit Belfast Welcome Centre, at the former Northern Bank in Donegall Square North.
Speaking at the official opening of the newly relocated and refurbished £1.82million centre Arlene Foster said: “Visit Belfast’s new visitors' centre is a state-of-the-art tourist hub and it is situated in a great location. The new facility will help generate higher footfall and it will be the first point of call for hundreds of thousands of visitors to the city. This in turn will create additional direct and indirect spending opportunities in Belfast and it also provides a further boost to tourism here.
