University of Oxford Botanic Garden, Oxford
(3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Walk through the famous walled garden to see the site’s oldest tree, an English yew. The garden hosts regular evening lectures, exhibits, family-friendly events, and special guided walks. Check online for a list of upcoming events.
