Guided tours, lasting approximately an hour and a half, have been arranged for the DDG at theUniversity of Bristol Botanic Garden. This will be the opportunity to experience a unique display of plants to enchant us all; explore the glasshouses to find succulents, orchids and a Giant Amazon Waterlily; visit the unique Sacred Lotus collection; discover prehistoric plants that dinosaurs ate and learn about the collection of rare and threatened natives.

The cost of the tour will be £8.00 per person (includes £6.00 entrance fee), however, “Friends of the Garden” pay a reduced rate of £2/head for the tour.

Tours do take place in most weathers so please come suitably equipped. The Guides will make full use of the glasshouses if the weather is inclement.

There will be the opportunity to have tea/ coffee and cake at the cafe following the tour, served in the beautiful, period Devers Room or sitting on the West Terrace overlooking the pond.
