Discover one of Europe's oldest botanic gardens through the stories and experiences of those who know it best - the staff. From hidden gems to areas that are out of bounds to visitors, you will experience aspects of the garden and its history in the company of a knowledgeable and friendly guide who can explore the garden in ways that others can only dream of.
See inside buildings that give insights to the scientific and educational role of the garden including the 18th century lecture room used by Professor John Hope and the carefully maintained collection of about 3 million preserved plants in the Herbarium.
But perhaps most importantly, enjoy the seasonal jewels of the garden, selected from our internationally important plant collection, and discover the endangered and threatened plants that we are helping to conserve. Every tour has something new and interesting for the plant lover with the added value of an expert guide.
