This was a two day affair,we went on the Sunday.There was a fruit/veg show, flowers both inside the marquee and in the gardens as well as the glass house. For the kids there were rides, larger than life giants, an assault course, face painting,archery, a few “green” stands, as well as other stalls inside the marquee and food stalls outside.

The Botanic Gardens is home to the Palm House and the Tropical Ravine.

The Palm House shows how advances in glasshouse technology allowed horticulturists to grow exotic plant species during the Victorian period.

The building was designed by Sir Charles Lanyon, who also helped design parts of nearby Queen’s University. The foundation stone was laid in 1839 and the two wings were completed in 1840 by leading ironmaster, Richard Turner. The dome was added in 1852.

So I thoroughly recommend a stroll through the gardens of a nice afternoon.

Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Chow for now!!!
