This 25-acre botanic garden is set among mature woodlands on the southern outskirts of Durham city. With its collection of plants from all over the world, it offers something new around every corner over the changing seasons. Wander through the alpine garden, winter garden, bamboo grove, glasshouses, woodland garden and a wildflower meadow grazed by rare-breed sheep.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.
Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.
Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
