A quiet oasis

The gardens were a great experience with clearly laid out paths, great signage, good loos, and helpful staff.
Transport & Parking
Parking by the John Hope Gateway in the accessible spaces was fine. However, this may get quite busy at times. Friends arrived by bus which handily stopped at the East Gate.
The gardens are well laid out with good surfaces for wheeling around and walking. The signage was particularly good with clear indication when paths weren't wheelchair accessible as well as some that were particularly wheelchair friendly. The glasshouses were fabulous with good paths, clear signage and automated doors as you passed between the different zones.
There were several accessible toilets in the gardens. One in particular stood out, at the John Hope Gateway, as it wa super large and well equipped. The others were good but with not quite so much space.
Staff at e Botanics were friendly and helpful.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A great place to visit and with plenty to do and see. A stroll through the glasses, coffee on the terrace, or a meal in the restaurant, as well as the opportunity to visit the shop made for a great afternoon.
