Let me start by saying this is all free, so its worth visiting on a nice day if you have time. It wasn't quite as exotic as i had hoped but was a nice way to relax for an hour

The elegant steel and glass construction was built back in 1839! At the time it must have been a miracle to many people and it stands as an example of victorian engeneering. So from a historical perspective it is very valuable. I am not really...More

Was a good trip around the gardens and also inside both house but it was a bit of a free for all. Nice buildings but there was no one to ask questions or anything.

Particularly when the weather is good this is a great place to explore. It's surrounded by cafes and restaurants and other attractions like Queen's University and The Ulster Museum. The palm House and tropical ravine are beautiful, as are the walks through the park.

We just came ot of the museum into the grounds and did not pay a charge, so as far as I am aware it is free unless there is somehing special on.
