Great place to sit and enjoy the beauty.

Hard to believe you are in the middle of Belfast while exploring this beautiful haven. Walk through the Queens campus, and then into the Botanical Gardens.

As a student at QUB, this was the best place to go when studying in the summer. It is a beautiful wide open space A- and in the evening when everyone has gone home, you can play frisby of nerf games without hassle.

Close to my B & B, I walked through the Botanic Gardens every day I was in Belfast. Thoroughly enjoyable and if you are interested in seeing plants, trees and flowers that are not native to your own part of the world, definitely come here.

Nice gardens to go for a walk and take a break from sightseeing, especially when the sun is out. The glass house is lovely!

But the colour and splendour of the hot houses made it a good visit. Went during March so there may be alot more to see later in the year. The Ulster Museum is within the park, allow 2 hours extra.

Lovely to wander around, and delightful spring flower display when we were there. Located beside Queens University and near the Ulster museum, approx 20 minutes walk from City Centre.

I was surprised at how small the gardens were but it still was a nice little activity to do. It smelled wonderful in the beautifully victorian greenhouse and the plants all were kept in great condition.

Pleased to have visited the gardens and although they are fairly small, the glass house especially was lovely. Enjoyed the tropical plants but the section of scented spring flowers was just a picture and their scent was wonderful. Wanted to bottle it and bring some home!

Very pretty place to walk around. The garden is nice, but the glasshouse is the main attraction. We were to early to visit, but even peeking in the window made it well worth the visit.

Of course this is the wrong period for outdoor plants and rose garden, the greenhouse is nice but there is not enough informations or staff and the Tropical Ravine is closed until Autumn 2016.... so this botanic garden at the moment is more a neighbourhood park.
