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.

  • Beautiful place to visit anytime of year come rain or shine, very popular in the summer months with different international events held. Victorian tropical gardens two of. Very peaceful. If your visiting Belfast certainly worth a visit and close to the ulster museum which is free admission and is by itself worth a visit. Enjoy.
  • Beautiful public park and gardens easily accessible for a lovely walk to explore "Nature in the City"! While here, stop off for a visit at the Ulster Museum, the Victorian Palm House and the Tropical Ravine. Or just bring a picnic blanket and picnic and relax in the sun soaking up the atmosphere!
