Tried & Tested – Durham Botanic Gardens


This is a firm favourite the Durham Mumsnetters in the Summer months for meet ups, mums and carers can grab a coffee whilst the children try not to drown themselves in the little shore-like pond.



There are several paths to choose from some buggy-friendly, some not, but it’s all very well sign posted. There’s plenty to look at from an actual bee hive to an indoor rainforest which the children love turning on the mist for!

It has a very nice cafe which serves anything from breakfast and coffee to individual tubs of ice cream! I also think it is fairly priced.

You can find the website for the Durham Botanic Gardens here.

P.s. Watch out for the great big tarantula…
