An urban oasis with woodland walks and beautiful plants in all seasons, close to Glasgow’s Southside suburbs

Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Greenbank Garden – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

This property is part of the 'We're Good to Go' scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.

Please be aware that for the health and safety of visitors, volunteers and employees in our hospitality venues, we will record the name and contact details of everyone who enters in order to support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect. This information will be used to enable NHS Scotland to contact you should you have been in the venue around the same time as someone who has tested positive for coronavirus. We are obliged to process this data to comply with The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 11) Regulations 2020. Please see our Data Protection page for further information.

Further to this, in National Trust for Scotland non-hospitality settings, where there is either a pre-booking system in place or there is the potential for close contact (eg in some of our smaller properties), we will ask visitors to provide limited contact information. This is for the purposes of managing the number of visitors and also to support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect. For further information, please see our Data Protection page.

Facilities & access

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Disabled parking is available adjacent to the visitor reception.

Accessible toilets are in the courtyard, adjacent to the tearoom.

Baby changing
Buggy access

The café is open with indoor & outdoor seating available.

Children will enjoy spotting the various sculptures and wood carvings throughout the garden and wider estate.

Coach parking is available in the car park and main drive.

Dogs are welcome in the woodland, café and courtyard area.

Assistance dogs are welcome within the walled garden.

We run regular garden walks, suitable for all ages – they are informative and loads of fun!

Guided tours are also available for pre-booked groups. Please allow 1 hour for the tour plus time for refreshments if required. Groups interested in gardening often want to linger longer. Groups of over 30 are usually taken in two groups, each with a guide.

Special interest tours are available by arrangement, with possible practical demonstrations.

Parking is available 75m from the reception and is free for members.

Picnics

Wander around the garden and you’ll find lots of tips and ideas to take back to your own green haven. Relax by the beautiful statue of Foam, a bronze water nymph set in a circular pool with fountains. Enjoy a winter walk surrounded by flowering shrubs and carpets of snowdrops. Admire the 568 varieties of daffodils that burst into life in spring.

The woodland walk is ideal for a family ramble – and dogs are welcome too.

The shop and plant sales, with a changing range of plants available, is open (Thurs–Mon).
