3. A Picnic in Belfast Botanic Gardens

In spring and summer there's nothing better than leaving the noisy student quarter with its pubs, book shops and cafes behind and heading to the Botanic Gardens, one of the most peaceful sights of Belfast. Sit on a bench or on a travel rug on the lawns and enjoy the contents of your picnic hamper, while contemplating the delights of the garden's floral displays and majestic trees.
