Great Victoria Street
« on: August 23, 2006, 07:55:35 PM »
This part of Belfast contains quite a lot of history. Today the street is known as Belfast's Golden Mile. There's a wonderful mixture of the old and new. One of the places worth a visit is  The Europa the most bombed hotel in Europe. Just across the road is The Crown Bar An interesting place that was well worth a visit some years ago was Good Vibrations record shop which belonged to Terri Hooley  Among a long list of places to eat in Great Victoria Street is the Bourbon Restaurant

Probably true Mageeka. Similar to Du Barrys and the streets off Linenhall Street. I did a one man "Which" survey one night. Stopped the car in Linenhall Street and a woman popped her head in the window and said "5" in the car and "10" in a bed. I didn't take the matter further :D That must have been 30 or more years ago.

"5 IN THE CAR" "I didn't take the matter further" ...do you mean you switched off the engine and opted for the car Christopher?
