  • Lovely location right on the river and close to the city centre. The only criticism is the lack of a cafe or similar  more »

  • The gardens offers a wide range of plants, including herbs and spices for the modern chef. The extensive range also means that a visit during one weather season will flower differently in the next- so there will be some thing refreshing for a second visit. Get an updated map at the entry gates before exploring the collection of flora.
  • Wonderful well maintained diverse gardens. Has busy periods as you'd imagine (weekends) but that's to be expected. Parking can be a bit gnarly at times and road noise from the M5 sort of ruins the serenity slightly. That said, the accessibility is great.
  • Just love the succulent and arid display but there is, much much more to see, including the planetaruim. Its eady to spend a very pleasant day here.
  • Nice gardens areas with lots of different types of plants to show off. Good place to walk around and an amazing place to get some really good photos of the plants that they have here.
  • Beautiful well maintained gardens. My favourite is the arid zone. Spectacular variety of flora adapted to the harsh conditions. Very interesting.
