Description

A voyage of botanical discovery at the heart of historic Victoria Park.

The Botanical Gardens were formed in 1887, and within their nine acres are many trees, shrubs, a rock garden and pool, a collection of old shrub roses, and a replica of a Roman Temple.

You will find the walkways, which wind in and out of the planted areas, and alive with birds, insects, butterflies and wildlife.

A small stream bubbles over stones and under small bridges, and there is a large, fish filled pond with a moorhen house. 

There are also benches dotted around for you to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet, away from the city centre.
