Inside the Glasshouse

The Glasshouse is 40' tall and covers an area equivalent to 10 tennis courts. Each curved sheet of tempered glass is 10' x 6.5'. This gives maximum light transmission, greater strength, wind resistance and thermal efficiency. There are three climate zones: tropical, moist temperate and dry temperate. The collection includes over 5000 taxa.
