Botanic Gardens

Botanic Gardens Glasgow.

A walk around the Kibble Palace and Main Range glasshouses of Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens.

Situated in the West End of the city, beside the river Kelvin, and once you get away from the main entrance area an amazing of peace and quiet.

The original Gardens were founded in 1817, and moved to this location in the early 1840s. The Gardens are home to the Kibble Palace, a wrought ironed framed glasshouse assembled in the Gardens in 1873, and to the Main Range of glasshouses, originally teak framed but recently restored with the wooden frame replaced with metal.

A thoroughly pleasant way to spend a lazy afternoon.
