Eating, shopping and mingling in The Botanical Garden

Café Victoria, summer café in The Botanical Garden.

The Botanical Garden is a place to admire the plants, wander, exercise, or just enjoy life.

You can bring your own picnic for an al fresco meal on our lawns, or buy a delicious lunch or teatime treat at the summer café – Café Victoria.

Presents and souvenirs of your visit can be purchased at the Tropical Glasshouse.

The Linneanum Orangery contains beautiful rooms that can be booked for parties and events.

Café Victoria

The gardeners’ century-old bakery and wash house in The Botanical Garden is now Café Victoria. Lunches and pastries made from local, organic and fairtrade ingredients, decorated with flowers from the garden, are served in the shade of parasols and venerable trees. Waffles and ice cream are on offer to tempt the children.

The Café is open daily from the beginning of May to the end of September.
