When I take my grandchilren here they like to visit the palm house and tropical ravine too see the fish, there is a good play park at the back . If it's raining we go to the museum which they love .

I've been to the Botanic Gardens in March and saw Camellias, Hellebores, Snowdrops and many other early spring/late winter flowers in bloom. In June, the roses, oh the roses!!! a fantastic rose garden, with immaculately groomed grass paths. Finally, on 17 Sept 2016, I was able to see the Botanic Gardens' Autumn Festival, with horticultural exhibits from freshly grown/harvested produce... More

A real gem. Perfect for a early morning stroll. The Palm House is fantastic. On a sunny day, I doubt there are many better places to be in the city. Make time to visit.

A beautifully kept park with wonderfully arranged flower beds and exotic trees. The place was ablaze with colour. The rose beds are definitey worth wandering through.

These are beautiful gardens and well worth a visit. Included is a large warm greenhouse for tropical plants. Our visit was in September when the flowers aren't at their best with the rose garden beginning to look a little tired but it was still well worth a visit. It is next to the Ulster Museum which is also well worth... More

The garden is alongside Queens University and a pleasant spot to spend a few minutes, but not worth a special effort to see.

Beautiful grounds, a lovely, lush green oasis in the city. Worth strolling through, have a respite or take a picnic. Very peaceful and free to enter.

Had a wee visit to botanic gardens on Sun 18/9/16 for the annual autumn fair, although it was raining it did not dampen the day. We had a wander round the beautiful big domed green house which is full of some weird and wonderful plants. There was a large marque housing all the entrants for the plant, flower, veg and... More
