If you have a few minutes free this is well worth a walk around the buildings. Some lovely old and architecturally beautiful buildings, and monuments to the fallen students in the two world wars. Close to botanic gardens so you can do a tour!

Queen's is definitely the best university in Northern Ireland. The building itself it beautiful and it also has a pretty great library. The university offers a massive range of courses. The student union is decent and student accommodation is also good. It is also a lovely place to walk around and take in the history of the building.

If you just want to take in the atmosphere sit in the quad, noticed something I had never seen before in the brickwork.

A lovely set of brick buildings adjacent to the Botanical gardens and the museum, and about 10 mins from town by bus. No students when I was there so it was very quiet. Nice area to be in and wander about.

We arrived late in the evening into Belfast. Most of the attractions were closed for the day. So we took the bus (#8A) using our iLink day pass and went to visit Queen’s University. The building is a masterpiece said to base on Oxford University’s Magdalen College (another city worth visiting in the future). At the back of the University... More

Queen Victoria established this university in 1845 and is named for her. The original building has been in use since 1849 and is an outstanding example of Victorian architecture.

This building is beautiful. Any photos you will ever look at, will never do it justice. It really is a stunning piece of architecture. I never went inside, but I hear the Library is pretty impressive.
