Entrance hard to find but once you do find it it is well worth a visit. About £2 entrance fee which includes the greenhouses. Well maintained and still very colourful even in October. Plants are well labelled and varied. Easy to walk around and the...More

This Botanical Garden area was just formal enough to be informative and yet with a slightly unstructured feel which to me gave it charm and softness. The water features were lovely with families of ducks skimming around, and lots of shade and light and colour....More

The entrance is reallyyyyy difficult to find. We initially walked right round the whole gardens and missed the entrance. They could do with having a sign up somewhere, as we didn't see one anywhere. They only take cash at the entrance, so make sure you...More

We have visited the garden yesterday. Beautiful and no tourists. Tram 19 stops in Rondo Mogliskie. From there 300 meters (take the tunnel, then the first left). Entrance is behind the red barrier.

Yes there is a tram stop about 10 minutes walk away - faster if you are a quick walker! The stop we used was called Rondo Mogilskie - its actually located on a large roundabout and is served by several tram lines.
