Visit at the Glasgow Botanics | A Photo Diary

A while back I did a photo diary post of my visit to the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens. Now It’s time for a post about the Glasgow Botanics! I’m a big fan of Botanic Gardens in general. I used to go to the Montreal Botanics often – though it’s crazy expensive, it’s lovely and worth it. Gardens usually allow for such nice walks through different climates. The dry climate with the cacti and succulents (who else is obsessed with succulents?) is always my favourite!

The Glasgow Botanics is situated not too far from the Hillhead Subway station in the nice West End area of town. Just a few minutes’ walk. The Glasgow Botanics are also free! What? I know, it’s amazing. It’s free entry to the grounds AND to the different glasshouses. It’s less lavish and interesting than the Edinburgh one, but since it’s free it feels pretty damn good to me.

Visiting the Glasgow Botanics is a must if you come during the summer. And it’s the perfect area to check off seeing the Hogwarts-looking campus of the University of Glasgow at the same time.

    Favourite flower? Much as I love all the exotic and amazing looking flowers there are in the world, I have to say it’s the daffodil. They’re such a sign of spring for me and once I start seeing them brightening up dull days everywhere I know the year’s only going to get better and better.

    Oh I love the Glasgow Botanics! I used to live in Kelvinside and walkes through the gardens everyday, often sticking my head into the glasshouses for some warmth 🙂 My favourite bit is the big rainforest hall – I wish there was a bench on there, I’d always come there to read!!

  • Such gorgeous photos, Camila! I love the details you captured 🙂
