The Van Morrison Trail - Mystic of the East

The Van Morrison Trail will take you on a journey through the east Belfast of Van's youth. The Trail is a wonderful opportunity for you to visit some of the places that Morrison knew as a child growing up. Many of these places, and the people who lived here, were to shape the character and values of  'Van the Man'. You will discover on your journey that some of them are referenced in his lyrics and music.
