Bristol University Botanic Gardens have moved over the years. An original grant was used to create a garden near the University at Royal Fort, before finally coming here. Previously, it was a residence built in 1879 along with 1.77 hectares (4.4 acres) of garden space. In the Second World War, senior American staff occupied it whilst preparing for D-Day. But the old gardens in Bracken Hill were relocated to this site - The Holmes - in 2005.
