VICTORIA SQUARE SHOPPING CENTRE IN BELFAST PHOTOGRAPHED MAY 2015
Victoria Square is a shopping and leisure complex located in Belfast. The area includes over 70 international and local brands, restaurants and the Odeon cinema. The centre also features a dome.
It opened on 6 March 2008. Its anchor tenant at nearly 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) is the largest House of Fraser that the retailer has opened in the UK.
A key element in the development is two covered, multi-level streets linked to the massive glass dome measuring 37 m in diameter and 45 m in height. A public square covered entirely by the glass dome serves as the hub of the entire area.
The ornate Jaffe Fountain, constructed in the 1870s by former Lord Mayor Otto Jaffe in memory of his father, has been restored to its original location in Victoria Square.
Victoria Square is a complex consisting of 17 different buildings. Pedestrian links to nearby business, nightlife and shopping streets on Laganside, Donegall Place, Royal Avenue and Ann Street.
