Botanic Gardens

Hollingside Lane Durham DH1 3TN

Despite belonging to the University, primarily for teaching and research, the Botanic Garden is a very popular spot for families and those seeking a bit of greenery away from Durham’s cobbled streets. The gardens are surprisingly spacious – 22 acres – and incorporate a steamy tropical house, a cactus house filled with fluttering butterflies and insects, and a wild meadow, dotted with sheep.
