Not much to say. Botanic gardens is a great place to take a walk and relax any day of the week. Easily accessible and especially nice in the summer

We've paid many happy visits strolling through the gardens over the years. If you go when the roses are in bloom it's beautiful. The arboretum it beautiful. Pop in for coffee at the Ulster museum.

Nice space that isn't quite sure whether it's really a botanic garden or a municipal park. The bijou palm house is gorgeous though, and the tropical ravine promises to be amazing when it's finished being restored. I also enjoyed the wooded river valley bit (pic), and all this on a miserable wet Thursday in January. It must be lovely in... More

On a beautiful day, there´s no better place to relax and enjoy a peaceful stroll than the Botanic Gardens. The setting is beautiful and location perfect, located right next door to Queens University. The ideal place on a sunny day to get away from it all.

On a beautiful day, you'll struggle to find anywhere as nice as Botanic Gardens... simply stunning! Well worth a visit to walk round and chill out on the benches watching the world go by... :)

Best place to just chill with friends in the summer! Great for sunbathing, walks, cycling, etc. It's like a beach in the city with no sand, it's a happy clean place, great to just get away from the noise of the town and relax with friends

Not a large greenhouse but full of palms and tropical plants. A short visit is all you need to see this garden but on a nice day you can walk around the outside gardens. Part if the Ulster Museum so it is a quick start to the museum entrance.

Great spot for a casual stroll and relaxation -weekend or during weekday lunch break. Make sure and have a camera sometimes in the evenings you can get some great dusk photos.
