Visited for the SLF / Stranglers gig. Great area for an outside venue. Sold out gig but plenty of room. Bars and toilets were busy as expected but we had a cracking time. Also loved Belfast.

The square was buzzing today as thousands attended Gay Pride event. It is a particular experience to see the fusion of the modern jollities with the austere of the Customs House building.

The Victorian building was designed by the architect Charles Lanyon and there's a sculpture on the Custom House steps, which depicts a speaker addressing an audience in Custom House Square. Near to it are the Albert Clock Tower, Big Fish and the city centre.

A nice piece of architecture with a wonderful outside space for concerts, surrounded by modern monstrosities.
