Oxford Botanic Garden

Situated in the heart of Oxford, the UK’s oldest Botanic Garden is an oasis of calm, the perfect venue for a drinks reception, evening buffet or a truly unique wedding celebration. In our beautiful Walled Garden and Glasshouses there are many lovely and exotic photo opportunities that guests are welcome to explore.

Event Lawn: Our hire charge is for exclusive use of the site from 6pm, but events can start earlier in the day while we remain open to the public. We can provide a spectacular wedding reception venue, with space for a marquee for up to 200 people on our Events Lawn and exclusive use of the site from 6pm.

The Conservatory: The Conservatory is one of our seven display glasshouses, and perfect for an intimate gathering. Imagine a family party, pre-dinner drinks or afternoon tea against the backdrop of our seasonal plant displays. The Conservatory can host up to 60 people for a standing drinks reception, around 30-35 people for a talk or lecture, and around 20-25 people for a seated meeting.
