One of the largest temperate glasshouses to be built in the UK during the last hundred years has created a stunning green world in the heart of the city.
Next to the Peace Gardens and the Millennium Galleries, the Winter Garden provides visitors with a unique experience in the city centre.
There are more than 2,500 plants from around the world creating a superb display. The building itself is 70 metres long and 22 metres high (large enough to house 5,000 domestic greenhouses!).
The Winter Garden also provides a home for several retail units and offers a welcome stop for coffee and light refreshments. Access is available to the Millennium Galleries where, in the Gallery Cafe, a wide range of refreshments and facilities are available.
- Monday to Saturday: 8am to 8pm
- Sunday: 8am to 6pm
- Closed: Christmas Day
On occasion the Winter Garden is closed for private events from 6pm. To avoid disappointment, please call in advance to check.
Admission is free.
