Beautiful park beside Queens University. The palm house is home to some beautiful plants and flowers, and the Tropical Ravine houses some more exotic plants and some fish and turtles.

Beautiful park with an old and stunning glasshouse. Ideal place to spend a pleasant afternoon. Lots of plants, old and modern glasshouses to admire, rose garden and Ulster Museum on the side. And if you are hungry, there are plenty of restaurants and cafes around.

Just on your doorstep and a great place of a sunny day. Even in the rain you can still visit the tropical plant house.

City Hall
“The City Hall is a beautiful spot in the centre of Belfast, surrounded by the main shopping area. (Victoria Square, Castlecourt and Primark). At winter, there is a Christmas Market outside the City Hall which is very popular. The strawberry beer is lovely.”

Point of Interest
“St Georges Market is 100's of years old and is first and foremost a fish market, but it now serves many different types of fresh and cooked food from different parts of the world. It also has stalls selling anything from local art and pictures, to books and crafts and you can enjoy a walk round it while listening to some live music being played in the middle. A real mix of everything and a must see when in Belfast. Only open from Friday - Sunday. ”
