Welcome to the University of Bristol!

6 September 2017

We'd like to welcome all new students to the University of Bristol; we think you're going to enjoy this magnificent city!

Here at the Botanic Garden we have a collection of plants from all over the world arranged in a number of eyecatching and informative displays both out in the open and in a number of beautiful (and warm) glasshouses. We're available to you whether you are studying Biology, Art, Literature, Drama as a resource, a place of inspiration, somewhere to relax and catch your breath in surroundings that you can escape in for an hour or two.

We're situated in the Stoke Bishop campus next to Churchill Hall and are free to students; so come and say hello, and if you'd like a tour of the Gardens you can contact us on or call 0117 42 82041.

Opening times: 

  • From April until the end of October the Garden is open for seven days a week including bank holidays and open from 10 until 4:30.
  • The Garden is open Monday to Friday and closed at weekends from November until April and open from 10 until dusk.
