University of Bristol Botanic Gardens
Welcome to a beautiful garden filled with a huge diversity of plants, including many exotic species set in inspirational displays against the backdrop of a striking Victorian house.
The University of Bristol Botanic Garden is the first new university botanic garden to be created in the United Kingdom for nearly forty years. The 1.77 hectare garden has been designed to tell stories about plant evolution and is home to four core plants collections: 1. Evolution, 2. Plants of Mediterranean Climate Regions, 3. Useful Plants, and 4. Local Flora and Rare Native Plants. These collections are planted in educational displays that convey the drama of plants in the wild, aspects of their evolutionary biology and immerse the visitor in the display, transporting them to many different habitats.
The large glasshouse provides the right climatic conditions for many exotic plants including cacti, orchids, carnivorous plants and unique within Bristol the Giant Amazon Waterlily and sacred lotus collection.
