WartimeNI Tour on Translink Glider

25th August 2018

The Translink Glider service came into service in 2018. It connects West Belfast and East Belfast and there are many World War Two sites along the way.

The Translink Glider Tour

Translink Glider is a new mode of transport connecting West Belfast to East Belfast through the city centre. Launching in September 2018, it will deliver regular bus services across Belfast.

WartimeNI is not in any way connected to Translink or the promotion of the Glider service. This imagined tour only serves as a guide to some sites relating to World War Two and the Belfast Blitz that you can find along the way.
