Where: 32-46 Great Victoria St, Belfast BT12 5EG, UK

When: Unknown

For such an important city on the island this station looks somewhat modest and unassuming, not quite what one might expect for so fine a city as Belfast. There is certainly plenty of activity there however, with comings and goings (though I have yet to spot a dog!) A virtual left-over Easter Egg to the one who can identify an Easter Bunny chaser!

Photographer: Robert French
