Worth a visit! Unexpected "treasure"
, Jun 2021
It's a really well planned out garden to walk and far larger than I expected. Lots of seating for quiet reflection. There were a wide range of plants and trees everywhere, and the hothouse was amazing. Good views of Dundee airport too!
Perfect day!

Excellent place for a day out. The setup is great and the garden is very well taken care of. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip!

Lovely garden meeting

Lovely gardens, friendly staff and great for the kids. Met my brother and family for first time in 8 months.
Gentleman at the front...
, Mar 2021
Gentleman at the front was cheery, informative and helpfull. Kids and adults had a great time, the kids especially exploring and playing around the site.

We are so glad our front of house volunteer helped make your visit special. I will make sure that gets passed on to help make his day too.
Beautiful place for a day out
, Feb 2021
Botanic Gardens in Dundee were absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed our visit. 2 year old found plenty to explore.
Awful and waste of money. People going in who hadn’t paid.
, Dec 2020
I booked tickets on line like it was suggested on the website. So for 2 adults paid £10. There was no one to check my tickets at the gate and others were just going in who hadn’t paid. The map was hard to follow-should have been more child friendly with landmarks to help to read it. Other people were going in who hadn’t paid as there was no one to stop them or to check my tickets. Fairy door trail was ok but wasn’t technically fairy doors as not attached to trees, they were just plaques in the ground.

Laura , I am sorry your experience was not what we would have liked you to experience. As an educational charity, we are reliant upon the volunteers for support at the front of house, and I am sorry that they were away from post and this has been noted. This was an exception and has been investigated and measures put in place to ensure it does not occur again. The fairy door trail is a new visitor experience that was in place to support and encourage family's to explore the garden and its unique collections. They are purposefully not attached to trees and are designed to enable future change. They interact with the free map and guide which can be downloaded from our website and are on display to pick up outside our visitor centre (not requiring entry). The other visitors include staff, friends (members) and students who all have free access to the garden, which we accept may be confusing for our paying guests. We have made contact separately and again are sorry that you did not feel you had value for money on this occasion. COVID-19 is a challenging time for all of our visitor attractions especially those reliant on volunteers who often come from outside of the COVID restriction areas. A final note: we do have a door bell and contact telephone number for the duty gardener who was on post in display at the entrance. We have these measures in place to ensure we operate safely first and foremost.

Would have liked to have my ticket taken but no one there. The gardens were great. The trees were magnificent. The weather was good and we were lucky.

We are glad you enjoyed your garden visit and apologies that your expectations were not met with a front of house volunteer when you arrived. This is a challenging time operationally during COVID and our volunteer front of house capacity is much reduced. The volunteer may have arrived late or popped to the facilities but the sign at the front desk should have explained the COVID-19 protocols to gain entry. When you return this should be addressed and we hope the collection and the weather both engage you well in the new year.
Oasis of calm
, Nov 2020
Lovely little oasis of calm. Good selection of trees and shrubs and great views over the Tay. Glass houses were small but even at the end of October had some splashes of colour. Tearoom was a delight with warming soup and goodies. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

We are so pleased you found us and enjoyed the garden - the autumn colour this year is wonderful and as you highlight the views for the garden are sublime. Do come and visit in again - the seasonal change is just as dramatic :-)
Easy to book
, Oct 2020
Easy to book our online tickets on the day we wished to visit although the Botanic garden opening times were somewhat confusing!!
Great day out
