Northern Ireland Murals are UK's Top Attraction.

Northern Ireland Murals are UK's "best tourist attraction", according to a leading travel writer, Simon Calder, The Independent's travel editor.

The Independent described the wall paintings as "an open-air gallery"

Lisa McMurray of the Belfast Visitor and Convention Bureau said of such good praise: "Visitors coming to Belfast do show a great interest in visiting the murals, which are of course an interpretation of Belfast's political history. But over the recent years they have evolved to also depict the city's cultural, artistic and sporting past."

The very fact that The Liverpool Mural Project has procured the talents of some of the best artists Belfast has to offer, to work wonders with communities in Liverpool can only boost the city's image to the world during The European Culture year.
