Connecting the kings, queens, castles and kingdoms of the Causeway Coast and Glens

From mythological princesses, to medieval sites, the tyrants of folklore, and modern monarchs, the Causeway Coast and Glens abounds with royal connections. Working with groups across the borough, Museum Services has created a heritage trail that links together the many locations with a royal tale to tell.

We would like to express our thanks to everyone who was involved with the project, especially Rosemary Henderson, Jim Hunter, Robert Johnston, Hester McCunn, Rosie McFaul, John McNally, Michelle Knight McQuillan, Clare and Paul Ross, Hannah Shirley, Rebekah Stewart, and Cuil Rathain Historical and Cultural Centre, who all contributed to the heritage guide.

The project was made possible with the support of The Executive Office’s District Councils Good Relations Programme.
