Belfast Waterfront is a multi-purpose conference and entertainment centre, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, designed by local architects’ firm Robinson McIlwaine. Practice partner Peter McGuckin was the project architect.
There are two privately owned car parks adjacent to the venue with dedicated accessible spaces on all levels. There are also wide bays available on the ground level of both car parks. Drop Off/Pick up Arrangements – you will need to display your blue badge.
By car or taxi – if you are arriving by car you will be able to be dropped off and picked up at the main entrance. If you are being dropped off in a private car you will need to use either of the two car parks above.
There are no steps to access the building, but within there are steps but have ramps for people who use wheelchairs and have mobility problems. All doors are wide and automatic for easy access for wheelchairs. There is a lower section at the counter and a intercom button within reach, if you need to alert staff.
There are 20 wheelchair viewing spaces available in the two auditoria and a loop system for those who are have hearing difficulties. There are 12 disabled toilet facilities in the venue, but none include adult size changing benches or hoists.
