Founded in 1621, this is the UK’s oldest botanic garden, having celebrated its 400th year as a centre of botanical excellence. It’s an oasis of biodiversity in the heart of Oxford, nurturing over 5,000 plant species, including many rare, fascinating and beautiful treasures. In the walled garden, discover colourful herbaceous borders, displays of genetically related plants, geographical beds and medicinal herbs. There are glasshouses to take you around the world, a peaceful riverside water garden and much more.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you
Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.
If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.
Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
