Experts at Flying Flowers said: “The UK is home to some of the worlds most beautiful gardens which are home to a mixture of designs and styles. With many of our gardens offering a huge range of flowers and plants cared for and studied by gardeners and botanists, they’re the perfect places to explore and get in touch with nature this summer.”
The study places the Botanical Gardens in fifth place, attracting over 13,000 searches a month. First opened in 1836, the spectacular gardens in Broomhall span across 19 acres of landscape.
The Gardens are listed by English Heritage as a Grade II site of special historic and architectural interest and the Grade 2 Glass Pavilions house an impressive collection of plants from the temperate areas of the world.

Top was Kew Gardens with 370,430, the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield got 13,870, which was more than double that of Chatsworth House Garden at 5,110 and Wentworth Castle Gardens at 4,630
