Visit one of the largest indoor gardens of Europe, located within Duthie park. You might be surprised to see so many people visiting the park everyday. It is because of the majestic floral paradise that you get see throughout the year. Take a tour within this indoor park and you will come across some rare, exotic plants from every corner of the world. Visit the primary attractions of the park - the Temperate House, Corridor of Perfumes, Victorian Corridor, Fern House, Tropical House, Japanese Garden and Arid House.

David Welch Winter Gardens Reviews & Ratings
Our first visit today and wish we had gone sooner! The gardens are just beautiful with plants and flowers to delight sight and smell. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the tropical area, cactus gardens and banana tree. The gardeners on hand were always ready to answer questions. One of our party used a wheelchair, and while some routes have steps if you persevere I think every area is accessible. A must visit if you're in Aberdeen!
Beautifully kept gardens, well worth a visit, but make sure that you get there in plenty of time because they close at 17:30. There's a number of different habitats, ranging from arid to tropical, a Victorian garden and a Japanese garden (though I didn't find it this time).
A very nice little botanical gem, well with a visit, and it's free - long may it continue!
A beautiful place to take in stunning flora and colour offered by the exotic species contained within. Oh and enjoy humidity never seen by Scotland.
A hidden gem in the heart of Aberdeen. A favourite spot of mine rain or shine and the recently refurbished cafe adjoining the gardens is great also. A true credit and asset to Aberdeen and not to be missed!
