Botanic GardensA green delight of the city
Glasgow certainly has its fair share of green corners, and the Botanic Gardens make for a delightful place to start.
The glasshouses immediately capture the eye, but the real delight is the range of flowers and trees to be seen throughout the grounds.
The northern side winds down to the River Kelvin where you can join the Kelvin Walkway; a footpath following the river from the West Highlands into the centre of Glasgow.
The Botanic Gardens include glorious glasshouses, the magnificent Kibble Palace, children’s playgrounds, a learning environment and a sensory garden.
Elegant tea rooms within the grounds make for the perfect spot to revitalise. If you are looking to spread your wings – the Gardens are situated next to Glasgow’s West End, providing ample choice for dining and independent shops.
The Gardens are open 7 am to dusk year round, with the glasshouses and café open 10am – 6pm (4.15 winter.)
It's free entry to all areas of the Gardens and Glasshouses!
