David Welch Winter Gardens

If heading outdoors is not something that you want to do in the windy and wet weather that we have been experiencing lately then why not do something indoors!  There is so much to do in and around Aberdeen and one of the places we like to visit is the David Welch Winter Gardens in Duthie Park.  This picture was taken in the Cacti Greenhouse.  This is one of Europe’s largest indoor gardens and is definitely worth a visit.  I couldn’t believe how tall some of the cacti were in the greenhouse!

Named after one of the most influential Directors of Parks, the Winter Gardens were named after David Welch.  Many of the flowers here are exotic, including cacti and banana plants and it is a wonderful place to go and admire the wonderful flowers and colours in the warmth of the greenhouses.  There is a scented corridor, a Japanese Garden and a Tropical House and not forgetting the Cacti Greenhouse!

And to finish off why not enjoy a hot drink and bite to eat in the cafe.
