Whiteknights Campus boasts a large former botanic garden that is perfect for both study and relaxation.
A biological trove
For a biological scientist, the Harris Garden is an amazing resource. Twelve acres of meadow are surrounded by a mixture of formal and informal gardens, that are home to thousands of plant species. A variety of habitats including woods, copses, and damp and dry gardens, support a large selection of animal life; with students and academics often seen making observations and collecting samples.
A beautiful environment
The Harris Garden is a great place for all members of the University and wider community. A beautiful and tranquil space, 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.
