Belfast, Queen's Bridge
Belfast, Queen's Bridge
Queen's Bridge was officially opened in 1849 by Queen Victoria. It is one of eight bridges in the city crossing the River Lagan. It is a Grade B+ listed building.

The metal structure is the second tallest public art sculpture in Belfast (LinkExternal link BBC Northern Ireland). Almost 20 metres high and constructed in 2007, its official title is "Beacon of Hope" although it is known locally by several nicknames (I heard "Thing with the Ring" and "Lula with the Hula", but I'm sure there are others).
