First opened in 1817 the Botanic Gardens have become an institution in the West End. Situated on Great Western Road, the gardens are known for their impressive range of Victorian glasshouses and the extensive collections of tropical plants and trees within them.
The gardens are a great place to explore any time of year, but you’ll find it particularly busy in the summer. There are lots of things to do throughout the year with their great programme of events such as weekend craft and book fairs, stargazing and horticultural talks.
With a recent £ 7 million renovation to the most notable glasshouse Kibble Palace (check out the article), the park was given a new lease of life which ensures it will remain a key attraction for locals and tourists alike for many years to come.
