Whiteknights Campus boasts a large area of beautifully landscaped botanical gardens, perfect for both study and relaxation.
A biological trove
For a biological scientist, the Harris Garden is an amazing resource. Twelve acres of meadow interspersed with ponds, streams, copses and sculpted hedges, the garden is home to thousands of plant species. Waterfowl can be seen in and around the water features, whilst pheasants and squirrels are sometimes spotted foraging amid the brush. The gardens are a useful place for study: students and academics can often be seen making observations and collecting samples.
A beautiful environment
The Harris Garden is a good place for all members of the University, regardless of chosen discipline. A beautiful and tranquil place, it is an ideal destination for a quiet lunch during a hectic day or a moment of reading and reflection at the end of the day. The garden has numerous benches both in open areas and under the shade of trees to take a seat on and watch the world go by.
