    Queen's University is the hub of an area that includes the Ulster Museum and the Botanic Gardens...but don't try to get there by car! Absolutely no parking available! Take the # 69, 70, or 71 buses from downtown.

  • Beautiful university buildings

    by cwningen Updated Feb 7, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Designed by Charles Lanyon, the university buildings are absolutely beautiful (it helped that the sun was finally coming out!). The university quarter is a nice part of the city with lots of bars, places to eat and the botanical gardens nearby.

    The angel

    This is the angel at Queen's University, University Road, Belfast.

    The main building of the University is called the Lanyon Building, after it's architect, Sir Charles Lanyon. He was responsible for many of the nicest buildings in Victorian Belfast, some of which managed to survive the Blitz during WW2 and the 1960's and 1970's when some of Belfast's finest buildings were demolished to make way for ugly concrete blocks.
    The original Queen's College was founded in 1845 and Charles Lanyon chose a neo-Tudor style, similar to that of buildings in Oxford.
