I have picked a few spots which reference the literary great C.S. Lewis. 

This one is placed with reference to the nearby family home of C.S. Lewis' paternal grandfather who is said to have made the wardrobe which inspired the title of one of his most famous books.  

Ty-Isa Parkgate Avenue, Belfast

Ty-Isa (Welsh for ‘the house alone’) was the home of CS Lewis’ paternal grandfather, Richard Lewis, who built a beautiful wardrobe for the Lewis family. Perhaps this Wardrobe was the inspiration for the gateway to Narnia! Ty-Isa was his home from 1870 until the death of his wife Martha in 1903. Following the death of his wife, Richard divided his time by staying with each of his sons until finally settling at Little Lea in 1907. Ty-Isa is now a private residence.
