University of Bristol Botanic Garden

The University of Bristol Botanic Garden is on a secluded site near the edge of the Avon Gorge. A peaceful oasis away from the city, it's also a learning experience.

In 1882 Bristol University established a Botanic Garden at the top of University Road, near to Royal Fort House in Clifton. In 1959 the collections were moved to their present location. Over the past five decades this Victorian pleasure garden has been transformed into a stunning Botanic Garden, whilst retaining many of its original features. These include the remarkable Pulhamite rock garden and many of the outbuildings which were used for the maintenance of the original garden.

The garden contains plants from all over the world, but specialises in specimens from Northern Europe, South Africa and New Zealand. The living plant collection includes more than 1120 genera and 4500 species from many different parts of the world. It includes a conservation collection of threatened species of the South West peninsular of England, along with many examples of crop plants, particularly those from the tropical parts of the world. There is also a comprehensive collection of herbs and plants commonly used in alternative medicine, inculding a Chinese Medicinal Garden.
