  • 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.
