A corner of Narnia from Belfast’s CS Lewis has been created on the Newtownards Road in Belfast with a £2.5million square dedicated to characters from the Chronicles of Narnia. The CS Lewis Square is part of the new Connswater Greenway regeneration project – an ambitious plan to totally transform some neglected parts of Belfast.

In total seven incredible sculptures have been created by Irish artist Maurice Harron – which include Aslan the Lion, Maugrim, Mr and Mrs Beaver, the Robin, the White Witch, the Stone Table and everyone’s favourite – Mr Tumnus.

We have visited the location twice already and had a great time. The site is open 24/7 – and will be enjoyed by all fans of the books or movies – young or old!

There is also a coffee shop on site – great for a relaxing bit and warm cup, if the Irish weather kicks in!!  The centre has maps of the sculptures and be sure to check out “The Seeker” and wardrobe as well.
