On a hot July day, when the streets are packed, you turn off into a haven of shade & calm. There's always a quiet corner. Even at lunch time, when many people come in to eat their sandwiches. the staff are incredibly friendly - personally lead us part of the way to Lyras bench. We took the chemistry trail &... More

It was a nice walk around. The gardens themselves have no order. Plants are not listed by country or flower type. This place is no Kew Gardens. It was still okay.

This is an attraction every one who visits Oxford should view. The costs are moderate and children and students are free. Take in a picnic and sit in the most beautiful gardens surrounded by 11 C architecture - and see plants from desert cactus to tropical rain forest ferns. Not to be missed!

The Oxford Botanic Gardens are not huge, but they provide a lovely haven of peace when downtown Oxford gets to hectic to your taste. Their tree collection is impressive in both age and variety, their greenhouses bring in the exotic bit, and their flower beds, rock garden and vegetable patches make a stroll interesting and surprising. There are plenty of... More

Just a short stroll from the city centre, these Botanic Gardens are well worth visiting for the gardens, the plants, greenhouses and hothouses, pleasant walks and the views of the river. We ended our visit with a drink sitting outside the cafe, overlooking the river, being entertained by punters' antics trying to manoeuvre their punts!

Small well laid out botanic gardens situated on the banks of the River Cherwella, just a short walk from the city centre, and features ponds, greenhouses, and various formal and informal flower beds made up of shrubs, herbaceous, and annual plants. A nice place for a stroll, and to watch the numerous punts go by on the river. Small admission... More

It was a comfortable place to relax and lie down, and enjoy the scenery while taking a refreshing break from busy life. Although it was a small area taken up by the gardens there were still a wide variety of plants to admire. We went there in June on a sunny day, there were plenty of shady spots to hide... More
