University of Leicester Botanic Garden
At the University of Leicester Botanic Garden, we focus on global biodiversity. You can see and learn about a wide range of plants that grow in our extensive collections from around the world.
Our Garden is fundamentally an academic institution engaged in teaching and research. Its mission is to:
- Maintain the most diverse garden in the region, in terms of plants, conservation collections, landscape features, and historically and architecturally important buildings;
- Underpin scientific research and teaching at the University;
- Devise and provide education programmes aimed at all age groups, reaching out into the wider community to demonstrate the contemporary significance of plants in a rapidly changing world.
