  • Visited while waiting for ferry. It's small and takes only a few hours to get around but I'd have went out of my way to visit it had I'd known how good it was going to be. Very informative and educational. Just wish a few more of the information had been in English. Superb.
  • Good spot for whiling away an hour or two in Roscoff. Intriguing aromas add to the visual treat of the profusion of plants from far afield. Good picnic spot just down towards the beach from the entrance.
  • An interesting interesting garden with a helpful map that you can take with you to ensure you get to see all that's on offer. Nice view of the sea from the rocks.
  • Secret place - it needs better signage to find, but once you've found it you'll love the range of flora and fauna.
  • A great display of semi exotic and exotic plants and a great way to kill a few hours before leaving on the ferry, so long as it isn't raining.
