Gartnavel Secret Garden

Gartnavel Royal Hospital, 1055 Great Western Road, Glasgow G12 0XH

Gartnavel’s hidden walled garden forms part of the original, 200-year-old-hospital, and was originally the private garden of the hospital’s superintendent. It was restored about six years ago by the Green Exercise Partnership and is run by a loyal group of volunteers as an oasis of calm for hospital patients, staff and visitors. We do a little bit of everything at Gartnavel, growing both edibles and ornamentals and, as a hospital garden, we feature lots of sensory and medicinal plants too. 

Directions: From Great Western Road (car, bus or foot): Enter Gartnavel Hospital site and turn right at the traffic lights onto Shelley Road. Follow yellow Garden Open signs, continue past pond and car park and at the fork bear left up the hill. Continue up the hill to T junction, turn right along the front of West House and park in the spaces there. Once parked continue to follow the signs to the gardens at the rear of West House.
