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.

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.

Titanic Belfast

Titanic, the British liner has remained ever popular through literature, movies, exhibits and folk songs. Considered to be the biggest experience relating to the Titanic in the globe, Titanic Belfast showcases the complete story of this passenger line - right from its inception to its unfortunate sinking through stunning, interactive displays, including artifacts such as the launch day tickets and last luncheon menu. Set on the former shipbuilding site where the Titanic and Olympic were built, Titanic Belfast is among the city's most prominent landmarks. Resembling an iceberg and hulls of a ship, this striking architectural masterpiece is encased in 3000 contrasting shaped aluminum plated sheets in intricate geometrical patterns. It is not only an ode to RMS Titanic but also to the city's maritime heritage. The historic slipways feature life-size frameworks of the Titanic and Olympic while its plaza is outlined with a map of its journey with LED lights and tiles.

Belfast City Hall

The City Hall dominates the city's skyline from every angle. The building's remarkable interior contains a marble grand staircase crowned by a domed ceiling of intricate plasterwork. The Grand Staircase is lit by seven stained glass windows and the Grand Hall is also adorned with several stained-glass portraits of British sovereigns, rescued from bombing during the Second World War. Guided tours of the building and grounds are available all year round; each tour lasts approximately one hour.

Crumlin Road Gaol

The Crumlin Road Gaol or Her Majesty's Prison of Belfast was established in 1846. The prison was often regarded as the Alcatraz of Europe in its time. Although the building last functioned as a prison in March 1996, some claim that a few men (who were executed here many years back) are still imprisoned within these walls. They make their existence pretty evident by various sightings and weird happenings around the place. They also conduct paranormal investigations, besides hosting this place as an event venue for live performances and concerts. Exceeding interesting and mysterious, this old prison makes for a thoroughly entertaining visit!

Parliament Buildings

Housing the Northern Ireland Assembly seat, Parliament Buildings were constructed in the year 1921. Officially inaugurated by the former Prince of Wales in 1932, the buildings were built to accommodate Northern Ireland's newly elected government. In the decades gone by, Parliament Buildings have rarely been remodeled. During World War II, the structure's Portland stone had been cloaked with a paint created with cow manure and bitumen which was removable. However, it proved to be quite a challenging task as it could not be completely removed even after many years. Even today, the buildings' exterior bears traces of the paint color. In the year 2005, Great Hall inside Parliament Buildings hosted the funeral mass of George Best, an iconic erstwhile Manchester United winger.
