This is a beautiful garden to visit, especially when it's not raining (as it was the day we went there.) The tour guide was most knowledgeable and informative. She knew her plants, including one which had been grown from a seed found near the dinosaur fossils. The indoor tropical garden was especially nice. Well worth a visit.

Beautifully laid out gardens kept in immaculate condition. The Victorian hot house/conservatory housed the most amazing plants and there is also a rose garden but we will need to visit again for when the roses are in full bloom. A very peaceful and relaxing setting with plenty of seats to sit and enjoy.

These gardens have many kinds of flowers on a good day you can just walk around the flower beds to admire the beauty and smell of the flowers, also indoor plants many to see.

A relatively small park with a small Palm House. Attractive, but it will not hold your interest for long. Suggest combining it with a visit to the Ulster Museum

We were staying near the Botanic Gardens so was a lovely place for a stroll in the sunshine. They are not large but very pretty so definitely worth a visit. The scent from the flowers in the glasshouses is beautiful. We also visited the Ulster museum which is adjacent to the gardens.

Lovely place to take a stroll around with plenty of benches for a rest as it is quite big. It's very clean and kept very well.

In through the back gate stroll through the park. Visit the palm house. Look impressed at the variety of languages on offer from the drunks at the toilets ( it used to be local dialect) don't use the toilets. On through to the museum.

In the Easter Day morning there was an unexpected sun and warm temperature. Walking around the botanic garden, chasing with the camera the running squirrels and checking the flowers and tropical plants was a refreshing and relaxing time. The closed museum was of course the obvious and pleasant next step to this visit.

A generally beautiful part of the city. A little bit of tranquility in the hubbub of the city. I walk through it almost every day, and haven't got bored of it, because it's so very pretty.
