St Andrews Botanic Garden

A beautiful garden to visit with the family. Includes a tropical butterfly house

Enjoy ponds, waterfalls, rock gardens, herbaceous borders and woodland walks. Over 2000 square metres of heated glasshouses protect cacti and large collections of tropical plants and alpines. Why not stop off for refreshments at our Tea Room located at the front of the garden (garden admission not required to visit tea room or gift shop).

We have indoor and outdoor seating and serve teas, coffees and a selection of cakes, biscuits and Jannettas ice cream. We also have picnic benches throughout the garden and encourage you to bring your own picnic if you wish.

We also sell a range of plants according to the season and our garden shop sells a range of tools, accessories and wild bird care products for your garden. Our Tropical Butterfly House is a must (seasonal)!
