Interest gem of a place in the hustle and bustle of Oxford. I'm not a gardener but found this place interesting especially the lily pads.

An oasis of tranquility.
Beautiful gardens, trees and fascinating glasshouses.
Take an hour or so to appreciate it if you visit Oxford. I don’t think you’ll regret it.

Very well maintained botanic garden. In addition to the order beds there are interesting greenhouses, a beautiful herbaceous border and an interesting flowering meadow, all in a relatively small area adjacencies to the river

We have an annual pass which at £20 is a bargain as it means we can come and go as many times in a year as we please. The gardens are so pretty and it is lovely to observe them as the seasons change.

After walking down the busy high street outside, this place seems almost silent inside. You can buy tickets on the door or online - both are fairly cheap. Inside are open spaces, a short walk along the River Cherwell and plenty of grassy / tree areas to have picnics. Be sure to visit the area detailing how certain plants have helped medical research...it's actually quite interesting!
