Great place, with spectacular bedding
The gardens are council run and therefore perhaps not as grand as the Royal Edinburgh Botanic Garden, however, we noticed that the beds in the amazing glasshouses where more 'showy' and really impressive. Most paths around the gardens where flat or on a gentle slop, only down by the lake their is a series of steps.
Transport & Parking
We got the bus and it stopped opposite the side gate on Great Western Road. Don't remember parking access.
Most paths where flat, wide and on a gentle slope. The paths around the victorian Glasshouses where wide and full of interesting information signage and great displays. The area down to the lake is not accessible. As steps get narrow and narrower down the bottom, I had my personal handrail and the views where great. The paths in the 80's styled glasshouses where more narrow and could only hope with one way traffic. The cafe was accessible outside and it was nice to have Belfast Brew under the umbrella's on a really sunny day.
Clean and plenty of room.
The staff and the restaurant were really happy, patient and listened to me, even on a really busy day.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Very worth a visit, and enjoy the magnificent carnivorous plants display and oh the Begonia's too (in the 80's styled glasshouses).....And the tea and carrot cake was lovely in the cafe!
