 The University of Bristol Botanic Garden

A new University Botanic Garden is being created within the grounds of The Holmes at Stoke Bishop, just off Durdham Down. Glasshouses have been erected and the major landscaping has now been completed. Planting commenced in 2005 and further planting during 2006 and 2007 is transforming the site into a new Botanic Garden. The 1.77 hectare garden, which opened in March 2006, will focus on four themed plant collections: (i) Plant Evolution, (ii) Plants of Mediterranean Climate Regions, (iii) Useful Plants, and (iv) Local Flora and Rare Native Plants, carefully chosen to fulfil the teaching, research and conservation requirements of a small University Botanic Garden in the 21st Century. As well as enhancing the teaching of Plant Sciences within the University, this investment by the University of Bristol will also provide a unique teaching resource for local schools and a new cultural attraction for the City of Bristol.

Opening Times

The Garden is open during July and August the Garden will also open 10 am - 4.30pm on Saturdays.

Admission to the Garden is £3.50. School age children £1. Entrance to the Garden is free to members of the Botanic Garden Friends Association, University of Bristol staff and students (please bring ID card).

We are always pleased to welcome visiting groups and if you are the secretary of a garden club or similar please contact the Tours Administrator at the address below to arrange a guided tour of the Garden.
