Belfast's Rose Gardens at Sir Thomas & Lady Dixon Park come into their own during the Belfast International Rose Trials and Rose Week. The trials are the highlight of Rose Week, which draws over 50,000 people every summer.
In addition to the serious matter of judging the finest roses - with a jury of experts picked from all over Europe - there is a fun-packed programme to satisfy the holiday crowds during the following week. Every afternoon there are special children's activities with face-painting, bouncy castles, Punch and Judy shows, treasure hunts and more.
A marquee in the Rose Gardens sells all manner of crafts over the weekend, while the Summer Rose and Flower Show presents the finest bonsai, cacti and flowers.
