Every Friday afternoon at 1pm, Clifton House will be moving their unique tours online, allowing you to find out more about life in the Poor House, or the stories surrounding some of those buried in Clifton Graveyard. Every week will be a different topic. This week focuses on the Poor House itself.

Set up by philanthropic merchants Clifton House was originally opened as the Belfast Poor House in 1774. Today it is the city’s oldest working building and is still owned by the Belfast Charitable Society.

Hear stories of its work and those who sought refuge in its walls in this special virtual talk, facilitated by our knowledgeable staff and volunteers using Zoom.

Numbers for these hour-long sessions will be limited to 30, to allow for Q&A sessions at the end. Please ensure you provide your email address during payment as the Zoom meeting login to join the talk will be emailed to you on the morning of the talk.
