Botanic Gardens is a place which holds extremely fond memories for me. My parents brought my brother and myself here many times as young children and there are old black and white photographs of us outside the Palm House which I always loved as well as at various locations within the gardens. I remember the ice cream man who was... More

The Botanic Gardens were beautiful and offered a nice place to relax. The Rose Garden was outstanding. The Gardens are right next door to an art museum which I also recommend.

Visited five times in four days. Lovely parkland, Palm House absolutely amazing, also Tropical Ravine obviously very old and totally different to the Palm House, but incredibly interesting, one needed to look all around, up, down, and around the plants.

We got off the bus here to have a walk around. The gardens are very nice and well cared for. Went into the 'tropical area' was nice to walk through but not that much to see. Was nice but not much to do here.

I had no idea this was in Belfast, and then we walked through it. They have two green houses with tropical plants too. It's right near Queens college so it's easy to walk through both if you're just wandering around.

Lovely rose Garden, the whole garden was lovely so relaxing and quiet. It is a great area for a nice walk and the lovely flowers makes it so interesting. Very near Queens so could do both trips together. Liked this whole area of Belfast.

Botanic is a nice place to visit. It isn't a huge place but it's a nice place to relax, offering a green house and a tropical house beside the Ulster Museum and QUB, and is well kept all year round. It leads to Stranmillis, QUB, QUB PEC, and Botanic Avenue itself. Good location.

From the entrance gates, being welcomed in by Lord Kelvin, showing you his calculation for absolute zero and hiding the compass binnacle under his cloak, with the spherical correctors showing, known as Kelvin's Balls to the British seafarer, and what American's know as Navigator's Balls. The open air parkland and gardens are nice are nice to stroll around, through the... More

Got off the bus here and paid a visit to the gardens. Were not overly impressed. Had some nice floral displays. A nice rose garden and not a whole lot more. There could have been a lot more signs as to what everything was. Maybe I am being a bit harsh as I stay in Edinburgh where there is a... More

A very well maintained garden with beautifully decorated flowers, plants and trees giving a refreshing look. The environment is soothing and it is a good place to relax and capture photographs.
