Gardens open for the summer

From 1 June, entry to the botanic garden on Riverside Drive will be free to University staff showing a valid staff card. The garden is open to the public all year round, and features both indoor and outdoor plants and trees which are used within the University for teaching and research. The garden is located in 9.5 hectares of south facing land, and has a visitor centre, shop, cafe, free parking and amenities for disabled visitors.

The garden is open to the public throughout the year. Further information is available on the botanic garden website:

The botanic garden is one of nine gardens in a newly launched visitors scheme - the Perthshire gardens collection. The collection is a consortium of nine gardens in Perth and the surrounding area that have come together to offer visitors a season ticket so they can enjoy all gardens for £15 with unlimited access throughout the year. The gardens are Bell's Cherrybank, Drummond Castle, Scottish Plant Collectors Garden, Branklyn Garden, University of Dundee Botanic Garden, Blair Castle, Cluny House Gardens, Scone Palace and Glendoick Garden Centre. Tickets can be purchased at any of the gardens or from any of Perthshire's eight tourist information centres.
