The University of Bristol Botanic Garden cultivates over 4,500 plant species within its five-acres. Such diversity of plants is unique and cannot be found elsewhere in the Bristol area. 

Be transported to the Amazon rainforest, the Highveld in South Africa and the cloud forests inside their glasshouses. Star attractions include the Giant Amazon Waterlily and the biggest collection of Sacred Lotus in the UK. 

The Floral Diversity Collection reflects the astonishing range of flower forms that have evolved to ensure flowers are pollinated by different means. An Evolutionary Dell houses plants favoured by the dinosaurs - ginkgos, cycads and the Wollemi Pine. 

In addition to visitor tours, the botanic garden hosts a number of yearly events including jazz, science picnics, sculpture and art exhibitions. They also run a full programme of courses offering a variety of topics ranging from garden design, vegetable growing, gardening for wildlife and botanical painting.
