Botanic Gardens and Palm House
A walk in the park can hardly come any better than at the extensive rose garden, long herbaceous borders and exotic tree species of Botanic Gardens (right). Enjoy the splendour of the Charles Lanyon-designed Palm House too, both outside and in, where tropical plants and birds of paradise flourish.

Give your children their sugar hit with a trip to Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory (right) in east Belfast. Sample some of the finest chocolate and hand-made fudge and let the youngsters create their own sweets. It’s not only interesting for children though, adults can go back to their childhood and enjoy the tastes and
smells of old-time candy-making.
