University garden declared as one of UK’s top green spaces


The University of Bristol’s Royal Fort Gardens have been awarded the coveted Green Flag Award as it is officially recognised as one of the country’s best parks.

The Royal Fort Gardens, situated in the heart of the main University of Bristol campus received the prestigious internationally accredited Green Flag Award, now in its 26th year.

Previously sculptured by renowned 18th century ‘English Landscape’ designer Humphrey Repton, the views of Bristol Docks have disappeared, but the original garden still retains a wide rolling feel and many quiet and secluded garden areas, as well as a pond, floral borders, and fine trees, many with labels and QR codes which lead to an online tree map, with fascinating tree facts.
