“A little refuge for an hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We toured the gardens for about 20 minutes then went into the warm greenhouses to escape the cold. It was nice to see all the different trees and plants but a bit small.

“Beautiful well kept gardens of international importance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Superb displays of flora from around the world. The greenhouses get VERY hot during the summer, so bring a bottle of water...

“lovely gardens and hot houses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

shame you now have to pay to go into the gardens, probably still worth the money though, even in winter there is still a vast amount of plants and shrubs to look at and the walk around the gardens and hot houses is relaxing

“Relaxing and Slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Make sure its a very nice day when you go, just off the high street easy to get to on foot and the perfect addition to an activity such as punting. not much to see but a good place for a walk.

“Unwind on a summer afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The Botanical Gardens are one of the most beautiful spots of Oxford. Get away from the hubbub and relax amongst the most beautiful examples of nature.
