Bermuda Botanical Gardens & Camden House

Bermuda / Americas

The Bermuda Botanical Gardens were inaugurated in 1898 in Paget parish, and stretch to 35 acres.  The gardens contain large glasshouses containing cacti and orchids.  In the gardens themselves that are formal gardens and lawns.  They have a vast collection of sub-tropical fruit trees, hibiscus, an aviary and Banyan trees, alongside numerous flowers, shrubs and trees.  There is a visitor centre, and an aromatic garden specially created for the benefit of blind visitors.  Walking tours of the botanical gardens take place on certain days.

Also in the gardens is Camden House, the official residence of the Premier.  This is an impressive building with painted shutters and fretwork.  It dates from the early 1700s.  It contains an important collection of art and antiques.  Free tours of the house are available.  Behind the house is a rose garden, a kitchen garden, and an aviary.
