The conservatory is home to our tropical plant collection with plants and animals from all around the world. The plants are divided into the continents: South America, Africa, Australasia and Asia. There is also a large cactus collection along with a banana grove and interactive rainforest tree. Both our Animal Keepers and Horticultural staff run various events and activities throughout the year from the conservatory. It is the gateway to the ornamental gardens and zoo.

At Calderglen conservatory we offer a choice of horticultural talks and tours. The talks can involve a guided tour of the conservatory and gardens highlighting facts from our plant collection. This includes economic importance of plants and their general everyday use. We can cover specific curriculum based topics and adapt talks and tours towards all ages and abilities. Pre and primary sessions can include a themed craft workshop to compliment the tour.
All talks and tours have a one off payment which includes entry fee for all to the conservatory and zoo.
