A gem of a place on the outskirts of lively Kingstown. Beautiful gardens with knowledgeable staff who can give you the history of the place and tell you all about the plants and what they are used for. Loved it and will be visiting again.

A beautiful garden of plants and trees. Knowledgeable guide Sanford explained origins and uses of various plants as we strolled through the beautiful garden, enjoying the lushness and the variety of exotic scents.

For 2 US Dollar entry and 4 US DOLLAR for a guide (per person ) you'll get a very interesting couple of hours. Our guide Errol was very informative and entertaining bringing all the flora and fauna to life. Definitely the number one thing to do in Kingstown.

After you've been inundated with the commercialism of the locals marketing their wares in Kingstown, grab a taxi and escape to the serene location of the Botanic Gardens. Don't despair when you are assigned a tour guide as they make the low cost of admission, so worth it. They are very knowledgeable and able to tell you in great detail... More

Very lush botanical garden, with a large variety of trees and plant...so green and well kept. Got a chance to see some breadfruit suckers from the original plant that was brought to the Caribbean by captain Blythe.

This is a lovely place for weddings or just a general walk around and enjoy the luscious grounds and beautiful flowers. I visit here often as this is where I live the beautiful island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines so I maybe a little bias. We do boast that this is the oldest Botanical Gardens in the Caribbean!

The botanical gardens was nice. The place well kept. No garbage strewn about. We walked the entire garden and was please to see a place so well kept. A bit more plants could be introduced to the fauna and flora for more diversity.
