Beautiful Tudor Gothic architecture that is lovely to walk around. Home to the Naughton Gallery and Queen's Film Theatre and right beside beautiful Botanic Gardens. Visitor tours can be arranged which provide a history of the university - well worth a visit.

Full of culchies and rednecks. Unable to understand the Highway Code, parking, driving and road crossing in the big city. The students run around like they've only discovered alcohol and drive like they're still under the influence. Avoid the area during freshers week.

While university was on holidays, we still enjoyed walking around the deserted campus. The main building is stunning! Having toured Oxford, and Trinity as tourists, it would be interesting to do a tour here too. Sure the history is equally interesting.

Don't miss a stroll through Queens while you are in Belfast. Absolutely beautiful. Like stepping back into "Harry Potter".

The Lanyon building of QUB is probably the single most beautiful building in Belfast in my opinion, a reminder that the real greatness of this city is Victorian.

Worth incorporating if you are visiting the museum. We had a personal interest as our son is a student there. Beautiful buildings and right next to Ulster museum and Botanic gardens.

I cannot speak highly enough of Queen's University, to study, to visit the beautiful buildings & surroundings or as a wedding venue. We held our wedding reception in Queen's University in summer 2014 and had a fantastic day. From the moment we contacted QUB, the staff were extremely friendly and professional. On the day itself, we couldn't have asked for... More

I have spent many days wandering around Queens and admiring the building and the grounds. It is well worth a visit and it can be a good place to sit and chill out.
