This is such a lovely gardens to visit especially in the warmer summer months with friends or family or just alone with a good book. The rose garden was quite nice , there is also many free open air spaces and benches to just sit and relax. Definitely worth a visit to just unwind and relax.

I cant believe how lovely this place is and its free!! We had a lovely morning having a wander round the glass house and museum. Found out a lot more about Glasgows history. Was special to me because my granny was born in Glasgow and my great grandfather was a concert organist in Glasgow. I couldn't help but wonder if... More

Lovely botanic garden.; Not the largest I've seen but they seem to focus on flowers. Great mature tropical collection in the glasshouse as well (philodendrons climbing dozens of feet high). Easily accessible. Nice surrounding park suitable for outdoor picnics. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend to visit this place! I have visited 4 years ago in summer and really enjoyed. This winter I paid a visit for a change of scenery and it was really beautiful. Sadly, the tea room closes early but overall it's a beautiful place to visit. I will surely visit again
