also, there is a very good lunch theatre in the old restored church on the corner opposite the main entry to these gardens. Scottish pie, beer & live improv for approx. $15-$20.

“A west end oasis”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The gardens are on there way back with the Kibble palace having been renovated and the other glasshouses full of interesting flora. At times it can be a bit sparse but in spring and summer it is a great place to spend and afternoon.

“A green-fingers paradise”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

You have really got to be a horticulturist to appreciate this greenhouse. Its got a lot to offer other than haven from the Winter harshness of Glasgow weather.

“Beautiful and free!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Have been going to the gardens for several years now and still find new things to see. Plus its great fun to come here on a sunday after a heavy night out and people watch sitting on one of the benches with a coffee.

Good for sunbathing in the summer too.
