Located in the leafy suburbs of east Belfast, Stormont Estate is home to Northern Ireland’s Parliament Buildings. The tree-lined driveway, Prince of Wales Avenue which leads up to the building is impressive during all seasons and is rich in history. Sir Edward Carson’s statue stands at the top of the hill in front of the building whilst many other moments of history are remembered with statues, plaques and a WWII bomb crater from the Luftwaffe air raids on Belfast.
The grounds are favoured by joggers, runners and dog walkers who make use of the woodland walks and outdoor gym. A Garden of Reflection sits between Massey Avenue entrance and the main building. Surrounded by beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees, the garden offers peace and tranquillity to relax, reflect and remember.
A newly renovated children’s play park is situated within the grounds of the estate and offers hours of fun for big kids and little kids alike. An outdoor cafe, toilet and baby-changing facilities are available within the park.
Parking is available in front of the main gates of the Upper Newtownards Road entrance. Additional parking is available at the entrance to the playpark, adjacent to Rosepark and on-street parking at Massey Avenue.
