Latitude 23

Take a tour of the tropics! Visit the Latitude 23 Glasshouse to see an amazing array of orchids and bromeliads.

Lying between latitude 23 north (Tropic of Cancer) and south (Tropic of Capricorn), the true tropics are home to an assortment of rare and spectacular plants. Just beside our fernery you’ll find two small glasshouses originally constructed in 1885, it’s here that we display a selection of plants from our permanent tropical collection.

Enjoy a private tour of our tropical garden

If you’d like to visit our latitude 23 glasshouses, join garden staff on one of our exclusive behind-the-scenes tours. The tours are organised by our Foundation & Friends organisation and offer access to plants that are not usually on display to the public.
