Site Accessibility

St Andrews Botanic Garden is a safe, welcoming, and peaceful environment, our team are passionate about creating accessible experiences for all and we encourage you to get in touch with us if you require any information to support you planning your visit.

Growing Together Events

Throughout the year, we host a series of "Growing Together" events, designed for families with disabilities and additional support needs - including free admission, refreshments, accessible seasonal & sensory activities and storytelling. We also work with PAMIS and Pony Axe S to make the Pamiloo mobile Changing Places toilet and a wheelchair accessible horse and cart tour available during many of these events. Please see our Events page to sign up for Growing Together events or Contact Us to be notified of upcoming events.

Garden Access

We have a wheelchair accessible loop around the Garden, marked in pink on our Visitor Maps. Most of the surfaces are flat, with a combination of path surfaces including metalled paths and grass.  There are plenty of benches and shelters located around the garden to stop off at and take a rest.  Unfortunately, some areas of the Garden, down to the pond, are steep and there are some steps around the Garden.

There is a ramp into the Visitor Centre and Gift Shop and we have an accessible toilet located at the entrance to the garden, as part of our Visitor Centre.

We have a disabled parking space located in our Car Park next to our Visitor Centre and Garden Entrance.
