An Droichead

An Droichead is a cultural space that hosts a variety of events ranging from concerts, exhibitions to community events. Considered to be one of the biggest Irish cultural centers in United Kingdom, the place is at the center of many activities throughout the year. The center also has classes available, ranging from music classes to dance workshops, as well as learning the Irish language. For additional information, call ahead or visit their website.

Botanic Gardens

A beautiful remnant of the city's Victorian past, the Botanic Gardens was established in 1828 as a private garden by the Belfast Botanical and Horticultural Society. After the Belfast Corporation purchased it in 1895, it has been one of the city's most loved public green space and meeting place for tourists and locals alike. Spread across 11.33 hectares (28 acres), the park is a vibrant medley of roses, rare oaks, exotic trees and blooms. The arched cast-iron glasshouse Palm House and the sunken Tropical Ravine are some of its prominent features. The gardens regularly play host to concerts, festivals and other live performances, making it an idyllic cultural venue as well. However, the one thing while visiting this place is that opening times vary.

Ulster Museum

Nestled in a corner of the iconic Botanic Gardens, the Ulster Museum is one of Belfast's most prestigious establishments with a spectacular collection art, ethnography and archaeology sourced from all across the globe. Formally established in the year 1929, this elegant four-story structure is located within walking distance of Queen's University's plush campus. The main highlights of the museum include riches recovered from the wreck of a Spanish Armada ship salvaged off the Giant's Causeway. Its top-floor gallery displays a series of exquisite British and Irish artwork.

Golden Thread Gallery

Located a bit further from the city center in the 'sailor-town' area of Belfast in an old mill, the Golden Thread Gallery has given a boost to the visual arts scene since 1999. Although there is no permanent collection as such, this spells good news for emerging artists who now have a chance to feature in their well-received ongoing exhibitions. Check website for a list of upcoming events.

Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park

An attractive rolling parkland, Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park's crowning glory is its International Rose Garden. It's a treat for the senses with the scents and riotous colors of over 300,000 blooms. Come for the famous rose trials held here during Rose Week every summer. Set out in a series of circular gardens, each garden has a different theme and is decorated with striped tents. The park also provides an ideal starting point for exploring the Lagan Valley Regional Park. Though the park opens at 7.30a, the closing time varies seasonally, please visit the website for complete schedule.

Grand Opera House

The Grand Opera House is one of the city's great signature buildings. Restored to its Victorian glory in 1980, it is a masterpiece in gilt and plush scarlet. The pièce de la résistance of this lavish interior being the elephants that support the boxes. The venue maintains its operatic traditions, with regular visits by some of the world's greatest opera companies. In recent years, the Royal Ballet and the San Francisco Ballet have both performed at this venue as well as artists taking part in the annual Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival. Ticket prices vary per performance.
