Glasgow Botanic Gardens

Glasgow Botanic Gardens is a botanical garden located in the West End of Glasgow beside the River Kelvin. It features several glasshouses, the most notable of which is the Kibble Palace. Just minutes from the city, enjoy pleasant riverside walks, peaceful woodland copses and explore exotic tropical places. There is a Heritage Trail through the gardens with almost 30 points of interest taking you down to the Kelvin Walkway and the Gardens Arboretum. The gardens are a great place to relax in summer or take a brisk walk in winter, with a programme of events including stargazing, gardening talks and even theatre. Admire exotics and exhibitions in Kibble Palace Glasshouse and the vegetable, herb and flower gardens.
