At the University of Leicester Botanic Garden and Attenborough Arboretum, we highlight the importance of biodiversity. You can see and learn about a wide range of plants that grow in our extensive collections from around the world.

The Garden is closed

The University has decided to close the Botanic Garden and Attenborough Arboretum until further notice.

This is because of staffing issues caused by the coronavirus, which potentially compromise the safety of the site. We apologise for the inconvenience that this will cause. The Garden and Arboretum will remain closed until further notice, so please watch this space!
