Queens Conservation Area

Location: Belfast
Designation date: 11 March 1987

Background

Queens Conservation AreaThe designation of the Queen’s Conservation Area (named after the Queen’s University of Belfast, the centrepiece of the Area) as the first such Area in Belfast represents an important step in the conservation of the architectural heritage of the city.
It is fitting, therefore, that it contains not only one of the highest concentrations of good Victorian buildings in Ireland, but also, in the Palm House within Botanic Gardens Park, a building of European importance.
