Leicester University Botanic Garden

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I was away at a conference this weekend with my day job, as a few of us were speaking about a reading test that we have developed for our international students. I was really worried about it, but thankfully it went much better than it played out in my head beforehand and I’m very relieved about this! On Saturday morning there was a bit of time where we didn’t really fancy going along to a talk, and as we were staying close by we decided to wander along to the Leicester University Botanic Garden. It really is an oasis of calm! And it was such a beautiful day, so it was really great to get some fresh air and enjoy the garden. 


Here are a few photos that I took – I could have stayed all day, but we had to get back to the conference!

I’d love to go back and explore more if I’m ever in Leicester again. If you’d like to plan a visit, you can find out more information on their website. Hopefully it will be on a beautiful sunny day like this![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    Oh wow, that is absolutely gorgeous! The succulent garden reminds me a little of the Zurich Botanic Garden, but the rest of the views…. not a chance, it’s just stunning! Lovely.

      Hello Elisa! Thanks so much for your lovely comment 🙂 It was amazing – I really wanted to stay there all day, but had to get back to the conference (sadly!). I’d love to go back and do some more exploring! x
