Oxford Botanic Gardens

The oldest Botanic Garden in the country, Oxford's enormous botanical collection of more than 7,000 species of plants has been growing for four centuries. It was founded as a 'physic garden' by the Earl of Danby in 1621, but today its biodiversity is renowned as being greater even than that of a tropical rainforest. One does not, however, have to be a horticulturalist to enjoy the beautifully planted walled garden, exotic greenhouses, herbaceous borders, rock and water gardens that make up this botanic feast.
