Lived in Bristol for years before I found this place. Quiet little oasis that blends education with a pleasant environment. Have been to the sculpture festival last few years which is superb and great value.

Cost so very little for a brilliant visit. Went with young children, so we only lasted a couple of hours, could have easily spent half a day here. Lovely cafe, friendly staff and idyllic setting. A real oasis and a great find: you won't be...More

Really enjoyed our visit to these lovely gardens. They are so well tended, with every plant species named and a very important message regarding the necessity of looking after our native bees. It's not a huge garden, but just big enough to spend a couple...More

Small enough to enjoy and see it all yet lots of interest which is where the part of the university comes in I think. All the Areas are Zoned so you have greenhouses with the tropical hot plants then borders with all different shrubs and...More

As a very keen gardener, I could have spent hours enjoying this garden and learning about the natural environments of the plants grown in the borders and glasshouses. If I lived nearby, I would certainly join the friends, so that I could revisit regularly to...More

Like a fellow poster we got slightly lost having combined the instructions from the website with the First Bus route planner, leaving us with a longer walk than was necessary. However, we found the place to be peaceful and calm with plenty to see. Plenty...More

A quintessentially British garden with lots to see, this beautiful space is a real treat. From a Chinese medicinal garden to a walk through the prehistoric, this surprisingly compact treasure will fill a sunny afternoon. You can even spot dragonflies by one of two ponds,...More

Although I cannot speak on behalf of the Botanical Gardens I can advise that they do have parking facilities for coaches and they are not far from the city centre. Go up Park Street, then all the way to the top of... More
