The University of Oxford Botanic Garden is the oldest Botanic Garden in Britain, and is the most compact, yet diverse, collection of plants in the world. It is open throughout the year, and differs from other types of gardens as it represents collections of plants that are grown for purposes other than purely aesthetic reasons.

For more information please visit the Oxford Botanic Garden website.

The site comprises 130 acres containing the best collection of trees in Oxfordshire with some of the oldest redwoods in the UK.
