  • Although the whole gardens are a joy to visit, and clearly much enjoyed by locals on a sunny day, it is the greenhouses that are particularly impressive. Not only is their design and architecture...

  • Amazing place full of wonder. If you want to have a treat in the morning, grab a coffee to go and take a stroll through the gardens here. I enjoyed wandering through a literal indoor jungle. It took me 90 minutes total, but if you walked briskly it would be 30 minutes.
  • Stunning buildings with a stunning history. We loved our visit here and it was a great thing to do on a chilly afternoon. A couple of the hot house rooms were closed, which was a shame, but didn't spoil the experience. Really good exhibition about the history of the buildings and the gardens. Will definitely be back.
