Glasgow Botanical Gardens, Glasgow Reviews

  • Beautiful retreat from the hustle and hustle of the city. Arrived from the airport for a layover and was impressed by the pristine lush green lawns and flowers in bloom. Was relieved to drop our bags and just lay on the grass in the sun and noticed many others were doing the same. So many benches line the pathway so there should always be seating. Didn't have time to explore inside the greenhouses. Will have to stop in again next time I'm in Glasgow.

  • The botanical gardens are a bit of a institution in the west end of Glasgow. With lots to keep people interested from people watching to the glasshouses with the fish and amazing plants. It always has a buzz. The cafe inside is good too particularly on a sunny day. There good open spaces and the kids love chasing the pigeons. If you explore you can find the remains of the old railway station.

  • An amazing place and the entrance is free! Two big and beautiful glass houses with a great variety of plants to explore and study. They close a bit early, even in the summer but the gardens stay open and they are a lovely green place with flowers and other green things to discover. Definitely a must on a nice and sunny day to enjoy this treasure at its best.

  • Well maintained all year round Victorian botanical garden in the west end of Glasgow. The Kibble palace is rather amazing when you think that it was donated by a single individual. The main cast iron glasshouses has a fantastic collection of plants and trees. If it is your first time visit you should visit the Tearoom for cake, the children's, herb and rose gardens. All right next to the Kelvin river.

  • Great place for all ages to explore in the city. Kids loved going between all the greenhouses and through the grounds. Very easy to find. Parking is a little challenging on a busy day...must've just been an off day when we went but the cafe could do with better service or just having food in general, a few things weren't available on the menu that day. Overall a recommended place to visit.
