We all love a visit to Botanic Gardens, especially the glass House and the new tropical ravine (wow by the way, we live that too). And the fact that it's free is just fabulous. Sometimes we draw the plants, sometimes we just admire them and stroll, and take a picnic. Lovely way to have a free day out.
This is a super awesome little green house garden with tropical plants and temperatures that make you feel like your walking through a Caribbean rain forest. Totally worth a walk around. The surrounding larger gardens are awesome too, lots to see and all very well kept.
Botanic Gardens is always a pleasant walk. Changing flora makes it a surprise every time. And the Palm House is a must for exotics. The Tropical Ravine, after refurbishment, is a walk through another world (closed on Mondays, except Bank holidays). And if you feel like learning something extra, the Ulster Museum is situated within the grounds, and has free entry.
We had planned to go to the gardens during our time in Belfast and we were pleasantly surprised when we found out it was a free access park. The park is very well maintained with long paths to walk or bike on and a greenhouse with different regions to pass through. Outside of the greenhouse is a really nice garden area. It may not be as big or have as much variety as some other botanical gardens but as this one is free I would say it is a great place to visit. It is about 30 minutes walk from the city center.
Absolutely amazing place to visit. So much to see and do. I have been going here for many years and it just gets better and better. It's great for a family day out.
Where do you start? Botanic Gardens has over the years been moulded and trimmed into a purely beautiful landscape with many features. This is an area where the whole family can be entertained whether through relaxation or nonstop energy burning discovery. Musical events are available 🎶🎵🎶, weather permitting; the botanical green houses with exquisite flowers🌹 and plants🌵; the museum 🏛️(which is a day of fun) ; childrens play areas🎠, for all ages 😉; an assortment of greenery which takes you away from the concrete city outside of the gates; a true playground for all ages. This is Belfasts Garden Of Eden 🌹🌸🥀🌲🌳🌴🍁🍂🌷
The newly refurbished tropical ravine is beautiful. A lovely park with exotic flowers and rose garden. Also, has the Ulster museum, so you can spend the whole day there.
Amazing ,sympathetic restoration, they have retained as much of the original Victorian charm as possible and have also made it fully accessible to everyone with a lift and toilets. Well worth the visit. Sat and Sunday had over 2.5k visitors . Current opening times are . Mon ..closed ( except public holidays) Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 4pm Last admissions 3.45pm There are looking at extending the opening times until 5pm
The weather helped it was a cracking day. We spent time going round the new extremely warm tropical greenhouse which is beautiful. The main conservatory has also been refurbished. The grounds are so well kept lovely colours. There is a small Japanese garden which to be honest needs tidying up but no biggie. The grounds are very busy especially at lunchtime because of all the students which brings the place come alive. We didn't get back to the museum but we will review there next time.
It is an amazing park with nice atmosphere. I recommend especially for fans of TV show THE FALL.
On a good day a great place to take the kids. Close to the Ulster Museum. Nice to sit and relax or walk around the green house.
Beautiful, tranquil and peaceful location! Ideal for walking, or a relaxing stroll and a great place for a picnic. Vast array plants and flowers on show, and extremely well maintained. Close to Belfast City centre, approx a ten minute walk away, but this place,Botanic Gardens has a lovely 'country feel';Its country in the city!.
This place is good to kill some time. It has the green house and Ulster museum to explore plus some other garden areas
So much packed in this small part of the city. Attractively laid out and fairly extensive Rose gardens, nice hidden walks including a sunken garden and planned borders. A bamboo section- with a small trail under the bamboos which is fun to explore with kids. Decent playpark. Large playing fields for ball games and attractive and popular central green for sunbathing. There is a band stand which hosts regular concerts from May-Sep. and occasional outdoor theatre. The Gardens also contain the Ulster Museum- the arboretum is often overlooked but has trees from around the world. Various sculptures around including a Chinese pagoda style structure with a really interesting sound underneath. Beautiful glass domed hot houses contain three areas of tropical plants. There is also a Victorian tropical ravine- also enclosed and a good rainy day option. The Gardens feature a statue of Lord Kelvin. Lastly there is a swimming pool, climbing wall, gym, squash courts and bowling green in the form of the Queen's PEC.
