St. Anne's Cathedral
St. Anne's Cathedral Review
At the center of the eponymously named Cathedral Quarter, St. Anne's is a turn-of-the-20th century edifice in the Irish neo-Romanesque style. Lord Carson (1854–1935), who was largely responsible for keeping the six counties inside the United Kingdom, is buried here by virtue of a special Act of Parliament. His is the only tomb. The guides on duty will show you around free of charge, but if you want more detailed historical and architectural information it's worth spending £5 on the guidebook. The 175-foot stainless-steel Spire of Hope was erected in 2007 atop the cathedral's roof, adding a new feature to the city's skyline and shining brightly as a beacon of newfound optimism for the future. In 2012, as part of the Titanic centennial, an elegant Titanic Funeral Pall was unveiled. The German Luftwaffe bombed this section of Belfast during World War II; on the cathedral's Talbot Street side, at No. 21, the Northern Ireland War Memorial has an interactive exhibit about the war.
