Nice layout of Botanic marvels on impeccably maintained grounds. With a selection of exotic plants and trees from all over the world, this is a must-visit venue for anyone wising to relax in a Green environment within Glasgow.

Took the grand-kids on a sunny afternoon, and although they are 7 and 10 there was enough there to take their attention. It was the first time that my wife and I had been. As well as going through the two main tropical rooms, we...More
