Founded in 1621, University of Oxford Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic garden in Great Britain and one of the oldest scientific gardens in the world. The garden contains over 8,000 different plant species and covers nearly 2 hectares (4.5 acres). It is one of the most diverse yet compact collections of plants in the world, comprised of three distinct sections. The garden’s greenhouses shelter plants from around the globe, many from much warmer climates, thriving inside an environment that protects them from the extremes of British weather.

  • Impressive!!Really a lovely place to visit. I spend wonderful time there.Just wear a comfortable clothes and shoes to walk there. 
  • Quiet place, wonderful, with breathtaking gardens. For a latino-American, is an experience of contact with specimens to us unknown. the presence of water channels makes the special landscape.

  • Visited on a cold day, the Botanical Garden definitely loses some of its charm but it is still a relaxing stroll. The greenhouses inside the structure are very interesting and offer a good variety of plants to admire.
