Time to play at SoundYard on Belfast's Maritime Mile

more than a year ago
Another exciting addition to the visitor experience along Belfast’s Maritime Mile has officially opened to the public. Located along the city’s 10kms of accessible waterfront, this interactive sound and play experience will bring to life the story of Belfast’s maritime heritage.

SoundYard is an impressive all-weather structure located on the waterside, next to the Odyssey and Abercorn Marina. It stands at over 6m tall and 9.6m wide and consists of over 500 suspended metal rods.

The design and sound, activated by motion sensors, were inspired by the noise of striking metal once heard from the old shipyards.

Along with other key heritage sites on the Maritime Mile, SoundYard will illuminate the waterfront throughout the year. It is a bespoke experience designed to attract local communities, reconnect them with the city’s iconic waterfront and provide a unique play and sound experience for visitors of all ages and abilities.
