We have spent many hours wandering through Glasgow's botanical gardens but one visit to the main glass house was enough to make us prefer to stay outside. Very smelly!

Such a beautiful place so take a stroll even in the winter. The plants are beautiful and so well looked after. Was a little desapointed that the rose wolrd garden was just thornes, but its that time of the year. Got to feed the squirrels!...More

Feeling rundown by the city? Out in the West End? Do yourself a favor and stop by the Botanic Gardens. This is an oasis of green in all that concrete and sandstone. It's free!

Absolutely noting! Unlike other botanic gardens which can be a bit poo faced, Glasgow Botanic Gardens (like its museums and art galleries) are used extensively by the locals, as well as visitors from near and far.

I really enjoyed walking around here. Lots of interesting plants and I like these older glass conservatory buildings architecture. The day we went in was a cool, wet day in June so it was nice ot get dried out and educated at the same time....More

Love this central and lush garden in Glasgow’s West End. Good coffee on sale outdoors and many benches for backing in the sun when it appears. The Victorian glass house rivals Kew Gardens and the selection of tropical plants is really impressive.

Nice place to wonder around especially in winter months. Great variety of plants. Could have more benches and eateries.

The best way is via the underground station from Buchanan Street to Hillhead, and walk a short distance. There may well be a street map at the station.
