This page contains information about how to get to Belfast and W5 for the 2022 BIG Event as well as where to stay once you arrive.
Here are some exclusive offers and discounts available to BIG delegates to enjoy whilst in Belfast. Discounts cover many attractions, city tours and restaurants
BIG has been able to secure discounts for BIG Delegates on some local Belfast hotels. Each hotel has its own rate and terms and conditions, so please do read each offer carefully. Delegates are responsible for booking directly with the hotels, not with BIG. If none of these suit you, Visit Belfast has a great website and lots of other accommodation options for BIG delegates https://visitbelfast.com/stay/

Getting to Belfast
Getting to Belfast is easy! You can fly, take a ferry or travel by train/bus/car. All the details you need can be found here https://visitbelfast.com/plan/getting-to-belfast-travel-options/ And don't forget, the earlier you book your travel and accommodation, the cheaper it will often be! So what are you waiting for?
While you're here, why not make the most of your Belfast visit and stay a little while longer? After the BIG Event is all over, Belfast still has a lot to offer, so stick around and experience the story of the Titanic, catch a Game of Thrones sightseeing tour, visit the Peace Wall or bring the family over and take in the Botanic Gardens, Ulster Museum and and old-time candy factory. Visit Belfast has loads of ideas for things to see and do.
W5, Belfast's local science centre, is hosting the BIG Event this year. And we couldn't be more excited. Bus, train, car or by foot, here's how to get there: https://w5online.co.uk/plan-your-visit/getting-here
