  • Wonderful experience today at Andromeda to hear about this amazing cultural heritage site. Inspiring story of Iris Bannochie and her family beautifully presented by Sharon. Was a fantastic way to spend a morning and as an RHS member free entry was a bonus. Only RHS partner garden in the West Indies, a real treat for garden lovers overlooking stunning Bathsheba.
  • Amazing place. Highly recommend
  • A peaceful walk through this garden is very therapeutic. A wide variety of plants and trees to see.
  • I'd previously never thought of visiting this attraction due to the fact that I didn't think it would be for me... I like nature but didn't think that a botanical garden would be my thing but this past week, my outlook has completely changed! I had the opportunity to go visit with some friends and from the moment we arrived, I was VERY impressed. The lady at the desk is genuinely a most pleasant person and she was quite informative as we were about to head off on the tour through the garden. Fun fact: Your entry fee doesn't just give you access to the garden on that day only; you're allowed to return as many times as you like in 3 weeks from the date of your first visit! I took advantage of this by returning a couple days later and will also be returning in a few days. The tour itself is self-guided but there are directional arrows to help you along. There are nice areas for relaxing and for taking photos as well as ponds with koi for the kids to feed (they hand out fish food at the entrance to kids). Overall, it's a great place to spend an afternoon relaxing. Two things to note: (1)Wear comfortable shoes as it is a bit of a trek and the paths aren't perfectly paved. (2) It is a tropical garden and therefore the temperature and humidity can make it feel a bit warm. Bringing a bottle of water might not be a bad idea although there is a cafe on property where you can buy beer 😉
  • Amazing garden where you can see and learn about tropical trees and flowers!
