Discover the amazing world of food plants with The South London Botanical Institute. Take a close up look at some of the foods we eat every day and marvel at their unique and rich structures and textures. Our microscopes will show you what you’re actually putting into your mouth!

The South London Botanical Institute, near Brixton, has welcomed everyone with an interest in plants since its foundation in 1910, and runs an extensive programme of school visits, family holiday activities, open garden days, walks, workshops and online talks to promote the importance and value of plant life.
