Ravings From The Bog

Hidden Belfast – Upper Crescent Georgian Beauty

Now mainly used as a rat-run for commuters, Upper Crescent was, at one time, one of the grandest streets in Belfast. A “yellow-pack” version of the well known Royal Crescent in Bath, it still retains some of the grandeur of it’s former self despite being mainly used for offices and having some almost derelict sections. The small park opposite, is a great spot to sit and mentally time-travel back to when those ladies and gentlemen in their “Quality St” style dresses inhabited this area.
