Glasgow Botanic Gardens is located in the heart of the city’s West End by the River Kelvin and contains a variety of plant collections, woodland copses and riverside walks as well as the famous Kibble Palace.
Kibble Palace is a magnificent glasshouse designed by John Kibble and houses the national collection of tree ferns. Plants from tropical rainforests grow in the palm house.
The Botanic Gardens Tearoom is the latest addition to the gardens and can be found in the former curator’s house near Kibble Palace.
There is also a children’s play area within the gardens.
