Description: Carefully created by acclaimed garden designer and RHS Judge, James Alexander-Sinclair, Horatio’s Garden Scotland opened in 2016 and supports patients affected by spinal cord injury from across the whole of Scotland, their loved ones and NHS staff. The gardens provide peaceful, yet vibrant, horticultural havens. Horatio’s Garden Scotland features a woodland garden awash with striking seasonal blooms and framed by a beautiful collection of Betula pendula trees, as well as artfully planted borders, courtyard garden, gorgeous garden room, fruitful glasshouse and much more. There’s plenty to explore in this thoughtful, therapeutic garden; one which rarely opens to the public and is unusually nestled right in the heart of a Greater Glasgow & Clyde NHS hospital.

Directions: From the east or west of the city: on the M8 motorway to Junction 25, follow signs for the Clyde Tunnel (A739) for three-quarters of a mile, then follow signs for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Turn left into Govan Road and the hospital is on the left. From north of the River Clyde: go through the Clyde Tunnel (A739) and follow signs for the hospital. Please look at our website for the hospital estate map for directions to the garden and available parking.
