The Glasgow Botanic Gardens, established in 1817, sprawl across 27 acres in the heart of the city. This green oasis features a diverse collection of plants, including tropical and subtropical specimens housed in the Kibble Palace, a magnificent glasshouse. The Main Range glasshouses offer an array of exotic flora, while the herbaceous borders and woodland areas provide a tranquil escape. The picturesque grounds incorporate the River Kelvin, and the gardens serve as a center for horticultural education and conservation. Renowned for its Victorian architecture and botanical diversity, the Glasgow Botanic Gardens attract nature enthusiasts and researchers alike.
