I spent most Saturday afternoons here back in the sixties, a group of us went to the matinee. York Street is the home of the University of Ulster 's Belfast campus, the home the university's art and design school and a part of the city's Cathedral Quarter , which takes its name from the nearby St Anne's Cathedral.

Previously the street had been dominated by the Co-operative buildings , built between and , and housing a variety of shops, the Co-operative's regional headquarters and their restaurant and ballroom, the Orpheus. York Street continues to approximately Hanna Street, a small side street, where it becomes the York Road.

Alexandra Park is a public park located in the area around the York Road. Whilst this area is mainly loyalist in composition it is adjacent to the republican Newington area. As a result, Alexandra Park has, uniquely for a public park, a peace line running through it, effectively separating the use of the park for each community. In late a gate was added to this fence making access possible for a limited time.

Tiger's Bay is the name given to a loyalist enclave centred on upper North Queen Street. Although it is not on the Shore Road, the two areas run parallel and are linked by a number of side streets. Its origins go back to the nineteenth century when it was constructed with very basic housing intended for the unskilled labourers who made up the bulk of the workforce at Harland and Wolff shipyard.

A long established loyalist area, Tiger's Bay has become notorious both for the strength of the UDA in the area as well as for the tensions that exist between residents of Tiger's Bay and those of the adjoining republican New Lodge and Newington districts. The Shore Road proper begins just after the junction with Skegoneill Avenue.

The end of the York Road and the area at the base of the Shore Road is often known as Grove, due to the names of some local streets. As has long been the case, the Grove area remains a largely industrial area, mainly now focusing on animal feed industries. The area, parts of which have been significantly redeveloped in recent years, is home to the Grove Wellbeing Centre, a building that combines health services, a leisure centre and a library under one building.

As the Shore Road progresses the Fortwilliam area begins, taking its name from a number of local streets.

The Fortwilliam area includes a large branch of Asda and a smaller branch of Lidl. Near the edge of Fortwilliam is Mount Vernon estate, a large area of loyalist-dominated social housing. Belfast Corporation began building the estate in , but it is dominated by two large tenement blocks, Ross House and Mount Vernon House, both of which were erected in The estate took its name from the original Mount Vernon House, a stately home, long since demolished, built for the Belfast merchant Hill Hamilton and named for George Washington 's Mount Vernon plantation.

The areas that follow Fortwilliam, known variously as Lowwood and Donegall Park Aveune, are almost entirely residential, although the area also contains Loughside Park, a public parkland and sports facility maintained by Belfast City Council. Shore Crescent is a loyalist housing estate located east of the Mount Vernon and Lowwood areas. It was one of a number of areas built in the late s to rehouse the residents of the inner city Sailortown area which was being demolished at the time.

This area is also mixed in terms of demographics, although the two communities are largely separated and since the mids, there has been a history of sectarian clashes in the area. This has lessened since the onset of the Northern Ireland peace process , albeit with some tension remaining. Belfast ends and Newtownabbey begins on the Shore Road an area which used to be the village of Whitehouse.

Rathcoole , a large loyalist estate, is located in this area as is the smaller Merville Garden Village. This area includes the Abbey Centre and a number of other adjacent retails parks, making it the main shopping area of Newtownabbey. The Shore Road passes through Whiteabbey , another of the historic villages that forms part of Newtownabbey.

The Whiteabbey section of the road largely contains private housing. The road then passes through Jordanstown with the University of Ulster campus close by. Can anyone tell me what bus number s that I can get from the junction of Jordanstown Rd. Ah happy memories I went to high school around there. It's the Ulsterbus service you'll need. At some times of day and it weekends it might become the , which is exactly the same route but it lets passengers on within the city zone, whereas the doesn't.

For your purposes it won't matter at all, I'm just mentioning it in case the two numbers for one route was confusing! The timetable is at the link below, although your stop is not one of those listed - I would just use the 'Greenisland, Lower Greenisland Station Road' timings to make sure I was there on time it's a few stops before yours.

Also bear in mind it's quite a confusing timetable with end and start dates to some services - pay attention to the key under service restrictions and notes, and the explanations for these at the bottom of the page. There is also a university service, which runs between the University of Ulster and Queens University Monday to Friday.

Also bear in mind there are a lot of roadworks in that area at the moment, so bus services might be delayed. An alternative would be to walk up the Jordanstown Road to the train station and take a train, which would leave you off at Great Victoria Street or Central Station, whichever is closest to your destination.

I'm glad my post brings back happy memories for you: Thank you very much for that detailed information. I have a further question - are bus fares 'exact change' only or will the driver give change if required? They will give you change. They might grumble a bit if you give them anything over a tenner, but they will give you it anyway: I will guess your overnighting at Jordanstown caravan site.

I had some people from the caravan club recently and they traveled into Great Victoria street daily by Train, The halt is on Jordanstown rd as mentioned above. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
