David Welch Winter Gardens, Aberdeen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Flat surfaces and ramps but far too steep for even a very active independent wheelchair user. Someone to push is essential, unfortunately. Otherwise, well worth the visit. A very well kept and beautiful garden.

  • Truly fantastic place. Huge variety of plants. The gardens seem to be endless.

  • Lovely garden near the centre of Aberdeen but the staff do need not to start packing up the chairs around you as you drink your coffee on your own half an hour from closing time! Lost you a star!

  • Open to everyone with an entry that only asks for a donation to contribute to the upkeep of the gardens. A great collection of plants in a glasshouse that is open all year round.

  • Free entry, various plants and small indoor ponds, cactus section is lovely, one cactus even talks!!! Nice warm walk during winter.
