Bristol Botanic Garden

From carnivorous plants to rare orchids and giant water lilies, the collection at these gardens is one that will excite visitors of all ages

  • Heritage
  • Museums

Set against the backdrop of a Victorian house, the inspirational displays include the Evolution collection, local and rare native flora, and herbal and medicinal plants. The garden contains over 4,500 plant species which will transport you to some of the world’s most incredible habitats.

Just a few hundred metres away is the vast expanse of Durdham Downs which acts as a scenic walkway between Bristol Botanic Gardens, Bristol Zoo, the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Clifton Village. 

Don't miss

From May until November giant floating leaves of the the Victoria Cruziana fill up the tropical pool at the Botanic Garden, a scene reminiscent of the equatorial lagoons of the Amazon.
