Are there places to go if it rains?
We’re a large site that has several great indoor display/exhibition spaces. There’s the world’s biggest single-span glasshouse which will take up at least an hour or more of your visit, especially since ‘From Another Kingdom’, the UK’s first major exhibition on fungi opened in the Great Glasshouse’s exhibition space in 2011.
We also have a Tropical House full of exotic orchids, palms and bromeliads: the Apothecary’s Hall, a unique recreation of a Victorian chemist shop; Theatr Botanica, a cinema with wrap- around vision; an art gallery, restaurant, café, shop, and, if you are a Garden Member, you have the chance to visit our library. So you can a have full day of indoor entertainment – just bring a brolly for getting between these indoor places.
