  • There is a beautiful selection of plants here, the green houses are especially good, with a superb selection of tropical plants. I took my little boy here and he loved smelling all the flowers

  • We took a public bus up to the Downs and then walked to the botanic gardens - well worth a visit. A small café; lots of places to sit; and a varied collection with explanatory material. 
  • Love the gardens a hidden gem! Like a mini Kew Gradens with everything to offfer on a smaller scale and a brilliant place to host an event. Enjoyed shooting Shaun the Sheep Event here for Dunkleys Chartered Accoutnants. You can see some photos on my page, Dianna Bonner Photographer. :)
  • Lovely place to stop and appreciate life!
  • This garden is like no other I know other than Kew, probably because it is curated by botanists as much as it is gardened. The plants are arranged as collections rather than flower-beds. Witty labelling in places "orchids are surprisingly useless except for aesthetics and vanilla". The glass houses are magnificent - collections of cactus, orchids, carnivores, huge water-lilies. You can see many of the rare plants from the Avon Gorge without having to abseil (although that is still an option elsewhere...). A good place to see what might grow in your Bristol garden. It is £3.50 well spent.
