Description

This listed building in Belfast’s Botanic Gardens has been restored with many of its original Victorian features reinstated and preserved.

Due to the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) the Topical Ravine and Palm House have been closed to the public. For more information please visit the Belfast City Council website

Split over two levels with an open reception area on the ground floor, the building has been modernised to make it more energy efficient with new triple-glazed windows installed to retain heat and create the right environment for the tropical plants it is home to.

Visitors will now be able to learn about the conservation work and plant collection thanks to new interactive and digital exhibits. Accessibility has also been improved with the introduction of sensory facilities for sight and hearing-impaired visitors.
