5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“See the greenhouses - even in winter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Clearly a cold December is not the best time to visit the gardens which you have to imagine in other seasons. However do not miss the opportunity to wander around the greenhouses where you can enter a tropical world for a short period.
Lots of information about the plants and presented in a relatively informal setting.
We will return to see the whole outside gardens at a more appropriate time of the year -- and see the greenhouses again.
