Tourist attractions along the Lagan
Big FishIf you're visiting the Lagan Lookout, or admiring the Customs House, you'll notice a big fish sculpture beside the Lagan. It was created by John Kindness, and the most interesting thing about this fish are its beautiful blue scales. Every scale is a tile, and every tile tells a story about the city.
Along the Lagan itself, there are a number of modern art features. For more information please visit www.dsdni.gov.uk/laganside-art
