We went for the 12th Marches last year. Our family took us up the Malone Road, they said it was the safest and more family friendly. We sat on the side of the road and watched the marches - loved it ! Most of the city is shut down so it can be difficult to get around by car. After they march one way they come back in the afternoon this is were we got stuck.

I think anywhere in Belfast centre is a good vantage point but remember the 11th and 12th are
Public holidays so there isn't much opened. Despite what you may have heard everyone is very friendly and you might want to ask a few of the locals at the parade where best to enjoy the celebrations to get the full experience. I hope this helps
