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.
Pick up a leaflet from the Visitor Centre and see what you can discover in the garden (subject to availability).
Lumiere 16th-19th November 2017 (4pm to 10pm)
Lumiere returns to the Botanic Garden later this month. A huge event like this takes a lot of preparation and from 8th November onwards, please expect some disruption in the garden during the day. The Visitor Centre car park is being partly used as a workshop area, so parking there will be limited. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. See our What's On Pages for more information on the event itself.
The Botanic Garden is open:
10am to 5pm from 1st March to 31st October
10am to 4pm from 1st November to end of February (closed over Christmas).
We are open on Bank Holidays and Easter Sunday.
|Students/Children (over 5)||£1.50|
|Durham University Campus Card holders||Free|
FUN FOR FAMILIES
