Please note the poetry trail is no longer on view at the Botanic Gardens but the online version is still available to view at Childrens Poetry Trail »


A poetry trail from one of America’s best loved children’s writers. (No charge for the Poetry Trail outdoors or to view online, but the Botanic Gardens do have entrance charges for adults except on Friday 5 March: £6/£5/free)

Jane Yolen, known as the American Hans Christian Anderson, has created a special poetry trail for children in St Andrews Botanic Gardens to delight and entertain visitors to the Gardens during the festival period. There is no charge for the exhibition itself, but entrance to the Botanic Gardens costs £6 for adults or £5 for concessions. (Or visit on Friday 5 March, and enjoy free entry!) There is no entrance charge for students and children.  Payment should be on entry to the Botanic Gardens, and not via StAnza Box Office.


An online version of the exhibition is also available.


Please note that the Botanic Gardens are offering limited access due to Covid-19 restrictions. More information can be found about this on the Botanic Gardens website.
