  • I advise to visit this garden when weather is nice for getting carried away by the beauty, warmth and the smell of flowers and plants that will make you travel while staying at Roscoff. Ideal to get away and relax. The highlight of the garden offers a beautiful view of the Harbour and the majestic the Brittany Ferries ferry (if you have the chance to see alongside).

  • The Botanical Garden of Roscoff is beautiful there are several place represented worldwide. The view is very nice on the side of Roscoff. The Botanical Garden is on a rock. The plants are very nice with lots of different plants. What is good is that at the end you can buy plants coming from the botanical garden as for example the cactus or the agapenthes... It is a staple of Roscoff.

  • Beautiful plants and flowers. You can spend up to two hours looking around the gardens. Walking up the steps to the top of the rocks is well worth it because you get amazing views over Roscoff. It costs 18 euros for a family of four to get in.
  • A great place that my wife and I and our 12 year old all enjoyed. Great plants and views over the channel.
  • Stopped here with a bit of time to kill before getting ferry. Expensive to enter with 2A and 4K's. Not buggy friendly either. Take path to the side and you will find a quiet picnic place and a little stoney beach for the kids to explore.
  • Well maintained, nice location. The cactus house was excellent
  • Surprising experience. Lots of work and thought has gone into this lovely garden with rare subtropical plants. The viewpoint is worth a visit.
