A place of beauty and education.

Glasgow Botanic Gardens, located in the West End of Glasgow is a place of beauty and education and home to The Kibble Palace.

The gardens are a great location for a family trip to stretch your legs, explore and breathe in some fresh air, followed by a snack at the tearooms.

Glasgiw Botanic Gardens and The Kibble Palace

Managed by Glasgow City Council, the garden aims to demonstrate HOW the plants on display are the air we breathe, the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the medicine we take, which makes it the perfect learning opportunity for kids and adults alike.

The Gardens also have a fine Heritage Trail with almost 30 points of interest taking you down to the Kelvin Walkway and the Gardens Arboretum.

Conducted Health Walks take place every Thursday starting at 1pm outside the Kibble Palace.

The Tearooms can be found in the former Curators house near to the Kibble Palace. In addition to the comfortable indoor seating area, visitors can take advantage of the summer weather and enjoy the surrounding plants in the outdoor refreshment area in front of the house.
