Overview

The South London Botanical Institute is like nowhere else, hidden away in Tulse Hill in South East London. The SLBI was established in 1910 to introduce the people of south London to the science, pleasure and importance of plants. Still based in the original Victorian building in Tulse Hill, this historic aim continues today, but with a wider remit than just south London and with plant education for all ages at the heart of its vision: ‘Discovering plants, enriching lives, sustaining the future.’

The SLBI provides a unique environment to help people explore the world of plants and to access green space in an inner-city area. People of all ages and backgrounds attend a wide range of events (including school visits, school holiday activities, talks, walks and workshops) and use their small botanic garden, library, herbarium (dried plant collection) and education facilities. There is no café normally at SLBI, so your cream tea will be a rare experience.

Enjoy a cream tea (2 scones & unlimited fresh tea/coffee) in the tranquillity of the SLBI botanic garden, a ‘hidden little gem’ in South London. Scones will be botanically flavoured, using seasonal plants & herbs, and served in the garden (under cover, if bad weather).

You will also be able to enjoy an hour’s tour around the garden with one of the SLBI’s gardeners, understanding more about the plants growing in the special themed beds of this Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation – including many species of medicinal, dye, scented and poisonous plants. You will also be shown some of the historic 100-year old herbarium specimens, still the bright colours of the day they were picked, and part of the SLBI’s collection of over 100,000 dried plants.

At the end of your tea and tour you will be welcome to look around the garden at your leisure, enjoying the beautiful, unusual plants, the little greenhouse full of carnivorous plants and the restful pond with its wildlife.
