They also took a trip on one of the world’s most picturesque railway journeys, to Bellarena station, to officially open the new platform.

“Northern Ireland is brimming with exciting tourism destinations so it is a privilege that Her Majesty will experience some of our most renowned beauty spots such as the Giant’s Causeway, the village of Bushmills and the breath-taking scenery on the train journey between Coleraine and Bellarena Railway station.

“We would encourage our visitors to follow in The Queen’s footsteps and take the opportunity to experience some of these wonderful places”.
