    Smaller than it's big brother in Edinburgh but still as interesting and nicely laid out. People are encourage to look out for red squirrels and report their findings to the reception desk.  more »

  • Absolutely lovely place, Fabulous view round every corner wonderful selection of plants and well worth a visit. Lots of added sculptures around the grounds too. Very reasonable admission
  • Fantastic place to enjoy nature without having to grow yourself. The gardens are well maintained and plenty of different sections from around the world.
  • Very well looked after by University and nestled nicely on hillside near to airport. Gardens extend between residential areas. A perfect spot to wander for a couple of hours looking at the plants, reading the labels and taking some interesting pictures. A little out of City Centre but well worth the effort of travelling to see what's going on.
  • Beautiful gardens with a small cafe, and shop adjoining. They also host a lot of interesting events here including Dundee Blue Skies Festival.
  • Visiting today for the first time, cannot wait.

Where to stay in Dundee

The city center of Dundee teems with hotels, from budget to high-end options. During the summer when university students are away, you can also stay in empty student accommodations. Contact the university directly if this is something that interests you. For a quieter holiday with a focus on the outdoors, consider staying in nearby Angus. Here you'll discover picturesque small towns and villages complete with charming bed and breakfasts.
