Welcome to the Botanic Garden
Durham University's 10 hectare Botanic Garden is set amongst beautiful mature woodlands on the southern outskirts of Durham city. Open to the public, the Botanic Garden offers a wide variety of landscapes to explore and discover, with guests young and old visiting throughout the year.
As an RHS Partner Garden, Durham University Botanic Garden is joining with the Royal Horticultural Society, Britain’s biggest gardening charity, in asking the nation to choose the RHS Partner (Feel Good) Garden of 2021
We know visiting us is a great way to lift your mood and leave you feeling good. Exercise and connection with nature have been shown to have very positive effects on health and wellbeing and that’s why the RHS has made Feel Good gardens its theme for 2021.
So, if your visit to our garden has made you feel good, please let us know, and vote for us at rhs.org.uk/pgoty before 30 September.
Whether you’re a plant expert or just love getting out in the fresh air; a walk in a garden is one of life’s great pleasures, a great way to brighten up the day and get you feeling good.
