Designed by Charles Lanyon and opened in 1849, this gothic masterpiece is said to be based on Oxford University's Magdalen College. It is regarded as one of the best universities in the British Isles and its previous Chancellor, former US Senator George Mitchell, was a major architect of the Good Friday Agreement. Famous alumni include former President of Ireland Mary McAleese, Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney and scientist Lord Kelvin whose statue is in nearby Botanic Gardens. George Best received an Honorary Doctorate from Queen's in 2001. Pick up the free, informative walking tour leaflet at the Queen's Welcome Centre where you can also buy a range of Irish and QUB-branded souvenirs. Guided tours can also be arranged in advance.

Is it possible that mine is the first comment? I received my degree from Queen's. As a Scot, who had lived in NI from the age of 11. I was delighted to learn that the Professor of Physics at Glasgow University, widely regarded as Scots and raised to the peerage in the name of the Glasgow river Kelvin, was born William Thomson, in Belfast.
