January 2021 Opening

With the recent news that Scotland will be moving to Tier 4 from Boxing Day, we have decided to open the Garden on weekends throughout January (2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, 23rd, 24th, 30th and 31st). Entry will be for those who live locally- please do not travel from elsewhere. Admission will be free for all!
We’ll have to reduce our offering whilst we’re in Tier 4, which means:
🌸 The gift shop will not be open
🌱 We will need to take some information when you arrive for the Test & Protect. This will be done outside, by the side window of the Gatehouse
🍂 The toilets will be closed
🌸 We can only accept card payments 
Please follow government guidance whilst visiting, this means that only locals should visit the garden and if you are meeting someone else in the garden, group sizes are restricted to two people from two households (under 12s are not counted the group size).
For the rest of the year our admission prices are:

Admission Prices (with/without gift aid)

Adult (18+)- £6.00/ £5.45
Concession (60+ or NHS worker) – £5.00/ £4.50
Under 18s and Students with valid student cards- FREE
Friends of St Andrews Botanic Garden- FREE

10% Discount on groups of 3 or more. To book a large group visit please email info@standrewsbotanic.org
