Free to Durham students A veritable rampage of colour in the summer and a great destination for sprawling around in when it’s hot, the university-owned garden range includes a sculpture garden (including various former Bishops of Durham), a Japanese Bank, a butterfly house and a tropical rainforest. Written guides are available and there’s also a glasshouse, a display of tropical insects and bugs, a visitors’ centre and a coffee shop. Some plants are also for sale.
