  • Closed now. But was very good
  • Pleasant enough. A work in progress. Almost £7 for about 90 mins to get round. Follies were interesting but the gardens have a way to go before they are finished. Conservatory is nice but not a patch on the one at the Horniman museum in south London. I'm glad I went,I enjoyed it, but would find it hard to recommend this unless you live locally-don't make a special visit to the area.
  • Nice place to visit for a quick walk.. Entrance of £6.95 is a bit too pricy I think for what you really get.. Would be great to have a bit more activities for kids...
  • Half price for national trust members so not too bad.
  • Absolutely beautiful although its free entry to the park for northern college students. The college is fantastic too. Well worth a visit.
