  3. Ulster Scots Centre
1-9 Victoria Street, Cathedral Quarter, Belfast, Belfast BT1 3GA

Situated in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, the Corn Exchange was once one of the city’s leading commercial buildings. In 1859, it was the venue for one of two major events which took place to mark the Burns Centenary. Today, it is home to the Discover Ulster-Scots Centre, which introduces visitors to the vibrant cultural identity of the Ulster-Scots people, Lowland Scots who have shaped this part of the world for over 400 years.

Exhibition galleries explore the early historic links between Ulster and Scotland; as well as the key events since the arrival of the Ulster-Scots, including the coming of Presbyterianism to Ulster, the Williamite Wars and the 1798 Rebellion. There are also a range of displays on the language and culture that Ulster-Scots share with their kin in Scotland, as well as a dedicated gallery telling the story of the Scotch-Irish, Ulster-Scots who travelled to the USA.

A gift shop is available on site stocking a range of items and literature, while our friendly expert staff are on hand to assist with any questions.
