    Despite having a street atlas and having checked a satellite photograph of the area in advance, it was still a little tricky to find the entrance to the botanic garden - the sign wasn't very visible f...  more »

    Really enjoyed our visit to these lovely gardens. They are so well tended, with every plant species named and a very important message regarding the necessity of looking after our native bees. It's no...  more »

    Small enough to enjoy and see it all yet lots of interest which is where the part of the university comes in I think. All the Areas are Zoned so you have greenhouses with the tropical hot plants then ...  more »

  • Bit of a hidden gem! Amazing selection of plants, some very unusual ones too. Plenty of parking. Cafe facilities and cake quality (!) needs improving (unless it has been since my last visit).
  • Really interesting collection, well maintained with a smart layout and lots of love information.
  • 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.
  • 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!
