The Botanic Gardens in Belfast occupy 110,000 square meters of the city and create a gorgeous and colorful view over the often cloudy and gloomy city. They are located on Stranmillis Road and the Ulster Museum is located in the gardens, right at the entrance.
Inside the gardens is the Palm House, a conservatory and iron glasshouse designed by Charles Lanyon that consists of two wings: The Cool Wing and the Tropical Wing. Another glasshouse with a unique design is also located here, the Tropical Ravine House, built in 1889.
The gardens are often hosts to music festivals and concerts in the Stranmillis Embankment. Some of the artists who have performed here include The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, The Streets, Snow Patron and more.
