C S Lewis Centenary Group
The C S Lewis Trail in Belfast and North Down
The C S LEWIS TRAIL links the main places in Belfast and North Down closely associated with Lewis.
Several sites lie within walking distance of St Mark's Church. See below a suggested morning's stroll to 3 sites. To see more, a motor car may be more convenient, although Lewis would approve of those who cycle around the Trail!
ST MARK'S, then via Sydenham Avenue to LITTLE LEA, then to BERNAGH, return to ST MARK'S. Allow 1 hr 30 mins, including 30 mins to see St. Mark's.
Best devote a full day to visit all the sites, with lunch at the OLD INN suggested e.g. ST MARK'S, LITTLE LEA, BERNAGH, ST JOHN'S (Helen's Bay), SILVER HILL, THE OLD INN; return over the Holywood Hills, CAMPBELL COLLEGE, DUNDELA FLATS and finally the CENTENARY SCULPTURE.
