The SLBI promotes and encourages the study of botany in South London.
The SLBI has an extensive botanical library, herbarium (dried plant collection), lecture room, as well as a beautiful botanical garden. Situated in Tulse Hill, the SLBI runs botanical events, talks, walks and educational activities which aim to amplify the vital relationship between plants and people.
Our building is temporarily closed as part of a large-scale restoration project as a result of subsidence, but our events programme continues. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to our building in 2024.
