Celebrations at Belfast City Hall today (June 6) will include a ‘pop-up’ Swedish Embassy to which the public are invited to ‘pop in’ for some Swedish ‘fika’ (cinnamon buns, biscuits, lingonberry juice and more) from 12 noon until 5pm.
During his stay, the Ambassador will also host a National Day Reception at Belfast City Hall and pay a visit to the Titanic Belfast Museum and Queen’s University Belfast.
Belfast is one of Stena Line’s most significant hub locations into which the company has invested heavily in the past 30 years. This investment includes the introduction of two brand new ships, Stena Edda and Stena Embla, on the Belfast to Liverpool service in 2020 and 2021. Currently under construction, these next generation ships will be the largest, most spacious and most comfortable ferries ever to sail between Belfast and Liverpool.
Stena Line is the largest ferry operator on the Irish Sea, offering the biggest fleet and the widest choice of routes between Ireland and Britain including Belfast to Liverpool and Heysham, Belfast to Cairnryan, Dublin to Holyhead and Rosslare to Fishguard routes, a total of 232 weekly sailing options. Stena Line is also the only ferry company to offer a direct service from Rosslare to Cherbourg with three return crossings a week.
