“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

If you want to experience plants from around the world, then this is the place to go. One can wander around for several hours and see plant life you have never seen before. It is a wonderful place to visit in Oxford.

“Well worth the entry fee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

While waiting in the line we observed a small group leaving becasue of the fee - they missed a great experience and I feel sorry for them. The cost is not excessive for a wonderful garden with its extensive conservatories full of amazing world wide plants, the variety of foliage in the outdoor gardens, the views of the Cherwell and punting and the generous number of seats from which one can observe comfortably.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

The Botanical Gardens are not huge like other cities, but it is a really relaxing afternoon to walk through the garden and bring a book. Because there is an entrance fee, it is much less crowded than some of the parks or meadows. I got the annual pass for 12 GBP and went several times vs. a 1-time pass for 4 GBP.

“Great value for money. Vast array of plants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Enjoyed walking round the greenhouses and looking at the tropical plants. We went on a really hot day and it was nice just to sit my the side of the river watching people punting. Good value for money.
