This tour explores the foundation of the Botanic Garden on its current site in 1846 by Professor John Stevens Henslow, teacher and mentor of Charles Darwin, and traces the changes in philosophy and planting right up to the present day.
The major trees in the collection form the backbone of the tour, which also takes in the seasonal plants and places of interest. The tour lasts 1½ hours.
