The Botanic Gardens Is A Highly Recommended Tourist attraction
You can now take a virtual tour around the National Botanic Gardens, including the inside of the Palm House on Google Streetview.
The Botanic Gardens cover approximately 48 acres and include a spectacular range of four glasshouses dominated by Richard Turner's architectural masterpiece, the recently restored Curvilinear Range and Great Palm House.
Notable features of the gardens are the rockery, herbaceous borders, the rose garden, alpine yard, organic fruit and vegetable garden, arboretum, extensive shrub collections and wall plants. And of course there is the Herbarium, with a million dried plant specimens, and the comprehensive botanical Library.
