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.

Garden Access

We have a wheelchair accessible loop around the garden. 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 disabled parking spaces located in our Car Park next to our Visitor Centre and Garden Entrance.
