In this article, we will discuss how to add a title to Seaborn Plots in Python.

Method 1: Adding title using set method

set method takes 1 argument “title” as a parameter which stores Title of a plot.

Syntax

set(title=”Title of a plot”)

Example:

Here, we are going to create a dataframe with months and average temperatures

Python3




# import necessary packages
import pandas as pd
import seaborn as sns
  
# create a dataframe
temperature = pd.DataFrame({'Month': ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar',
                                      'Apr', 'May', 'Jun'
                                      'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep',
                                      'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec'],
                            'Avg_Temperatures': [22, 25, 28,
                                                 32, 35, 44
                                                 38, 32, 25
                                                 23, 20, 18]})
  
# plot a line plot and set title
sns.lineplot(x='Month', y='Avg_Temperatures', data=temperature).set(
    title="Monthly Avg Temperatures")


Output

Method 2: Adding title using suptitle method

suptitle method takes a string which is title of plot as parameter.

Syntax

fig.suptitle(‘Title of plot’)

Example:

Python3




# import necessary packages
import pandas as pd
import seaborn as sns
  
# create a dataframe
temperature = pd.DataFrame({'Month': ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar',
                                      'Apr', 'May', 'Jun',
                                      'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep',
                                      'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec'],
                            'Avg_Temperatures': [22, 25, 28,
                                                 32, 35, 44
                                                 38, 32, 25
                                                 23, 20, 18]})
  
# plot a rel-plot
plot = sns.relplot(x='Month', y='Avg_Temperatures', data=temperature)
  
# add title using suptitle
plot.fig.suptitle('Monthly Avg Temperatures')


Output

Method 3: Adding title using set_title

set_title method takes a string as parameter which is title of plot.

Syntax

set_title(‘Title of plot’)

Example:

Python3




# import necessary packages
import pandas as pd
import seaborn as sns
  
# create a dataframe
temperature = pd.DataFrame({'Month': ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar'
                                      'Apr', 'May', 'Jun'
                                      'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep',
                                      'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec'],
                            'Avg_Temperatures': [22, 25, 28,
                                                 32, 35, 44
                                                 38, 32, 25,
                                                 23, 20, 18]})
  
# plot a bar plot and add title using set_title
plot = sns.barplot(x='Month', y='Avg_Temperatures',
                   data=temperature).set_title('Monthly Avg Temperatures')


Output
