Botanic Gardens, Belfast

This oasis of greenery provides a welcome respite for visitors. The gardens are popular with students from nearby Queen's University. Planned and laid out in 1827, the gardens contain two main houses, the Palm House and the Ravine House. 

Palm House

In 1839, popular architect and former mayor of Belfast Charles Lanyon designed this curvilinear marvel of glass and iron. 

The Ravine House

Formerly called The Glen, contains a wide variety of plants, such as the indigenous Killarney fern.

Things To Do at the Botanic Gardens

  • View the plant life from the charming balcony overlooking the glen
  • Relax in the garden area featuring flowers, trees, benches and walks that sits along the River Lagan
  • Visit the children's playground

Botanic Train Station

Botanic railway station is one of the four city-centre Belfast train stations. It is situated near the gardens.

Entrance is FREE, except during special events -- e.g. concerts are often held in the gardens during the summer.
