This statue pays a tribute to C. S. Lewis and particularly his story of the "Witch, the Lion and the Wardrobe" - the Narnia of Belfast!

I love the fact that this sculpture is just outside the library. I liked it a lot and it is just one of a few that you can find on CS Lewis square. A bit far from the centre but worth a visit.

This is a site that I was waiting to visit while in Belfast. It is a very nice sculpture that does a fine job of paying tribute to C.S. Lewis. Thankful to see this famous author remembered in such a great way.

There isn't much to say about this small "photo op" in Belfast. It's a sculpture on a corner of a busy street in Belfast, and it's easy to miss (or difficult to find, however you'd like to look at it). However, I'm a fan of...More

Not a lot to say, it's a nice sculpture too stumble across but hardly worth a visit unless you are in the area or are a C S Lewis fan.

You'll find this Ross Wilson sculpture to the left of the public library on the Holywood Road. (There are free car parks off a side road of the Newtownards Road for the C.S. Lewis Square that connects to here.) It is good that The Searcher...More

This statue has been there a long time but now has the addition of all the other Narnia related statues in a path and walkway-it is very interesting to walk around and children love it-also there is a visitors centre

It's a little over two miles. You can catch a bus from Donegall Sq West that will drop you off at it. I think it's the number 8A, and a day ticket will cost you £3.20. Don't drive up, as there is no parking, and it's a very... More
