  • Very beautiful botanical garden, well maintained, clean, convenient access, large garden with a wide range of plant species. Great for light hiking with kids. Perfect for picnic, tables are available if needed but obviously plenty of green space to eat on the floor. Small coffee place but I don't think this is always open. Toilet available at different locations. Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to go.
  • This is my famous favourite place to go on school holidays or weekends. It's absolutely gorgeous and the entire gardens and scenery are just Devine. It's so peaceful and quiet you can hear the birds and all the nature around you. Autumn is our favourite time to go as it's a rainbow of autumn colors throughout the gardens. There are colorful unique flowers and plants that you really don't see anywhere else. You can picnic there with family and friends or just go for a romantic day out. Never get bored of going here.
  • Beautiful, peaceful and lovely for a family visit. Beware some of the paths can be quite steep for young / elderly / physically less-able people. Lovely to wander off the paths and enjoy the picturesque scenery in and around the gardens.
  • There was a misty rain that day. Beautiful walking along the paths and in between the conifers. Magical atmosphere and so quiet. Did need a brolly though. Because of the weather not many people around.
  • Beautiful place for a nice walk to see all the amazing gardens. In autumn the colours of the trees is breathtaking and great for photographers.
