A delightful retreat from the city, the Dundee Botanic Garden offers visitors of all ages a chance to stop and smell the flowers. It’s also used as an event space and for school education programmes.

Visit the University of Dundee Botanic Garden and enjoy its wide range of plants, a collection of conifers and broad-leaved trees and shrubs, tropical and temperate glasshouses, water garden and herb garden. 

Located in 9.5 hectares of beautiful south facing, gently sloping land near the banks of the River Tay, the Garden features many species of indigenous British plants as well as representative collections of important plants from all the continents of the world. The Garden is committed to Education for people of all ages, with more than 80,000 visitors crossing its threshold every year. 

The Garden has a popular café (contact on 01382 666410) and gift shop, whilst art exhibitions are hosted in the Tay View Gallery, and facilities exist for holding receptions, meetings, and weddings. If interested in holding an event here, please email us at [email protected] to discuss.
