Garden
Belfast Botanical Gardens combines history with nature. Open since 1828, the gardens hold many exotic tree species and plant collections from the southern hemisphere. It is home to the Palm House conservatory and the Tropical Ravine. Completed in 1852, Palm House is one of the oldest and finest cast-iron and glass greenhouses. It boasts an impressive array of plant species, including an Australian lily that finally bloomed after a 23-year wait. Tropical Ravine contains what are thought to be some of the oldest seed plants in the world, as well as banana, cinnamon, and orchid plants. The gardens contain giant bird feeders, a rose garden, an alpine garden, mature trees, flower beds, and sculptures.

  • Public place having free access. Those who love Roses this is the place to visit, as you can see so many varieties of them. Lots of places to sit back and relax and to have your own food. Large spectrum of plants from cactus to Asian and other verities. Nice place to visit and spend around one hour.
  • Really pretty. relaxing and spacious green area in Belfast. Definitely worth a visit if not to admire the scenery then just to relax. Lots to see and do for kids as well as adults.
  • Great place to walk the dog and the botanical plants are beautiful. Ulster museum next door so makes for a complete day out.
  • Beautiful park - even on a gray day. It's a great place to sit and read a book. Be sure to visit the conservatory.
  • Very clean and well looked after. Come here for fun on the grass or relaxing by the flowers.
