The Winter Garden

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 the Bessemer Gallery and offers a welcome stop for coffee and light refreshments. Access is available to the Millennium Galleries where, in Cafe Azure, a wide range of refreshments and facilities are available.
