Attenborough Arboretum

Carisbrooke Road, Leicester, LE2 3PF. England

At the University of Leicester Botanic Garden & Attenborough Arboretum, we focus on global biodiversity, offering a wide range of plants that grow in our extensive collections from around the world. The site features the only surviving example in the city of a medieval ridge-and-furrow field and contains two large ponds with a sturdy boardwalk for observation and pond-dipping.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
