Intersting palm house and tropical ravine, which is going to be restored. Lovely herbaceous borders and rose garden. Nice place for a walk or to sit in the sun. Lots of benches in some areas.

Although it was October, this lovely place was well worth a visit. Next to the Ulster museum, with lots of cafes nearby. The university is all around so it is a thriving place.

This is a great way to spend an afternoon. The gardens are pretty and the palm house is well worth the visit. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic while people watching on the grounds.

Flowers are absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful area to walk and it is very close to the place I am staying so I can go as much as weather permits.
