  • Free entry. Beautiful gardens with all sorts of plants. A lovely cafe, children's playground, pitch and putt. Lots of green space. So lucky to have it in town. Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful, well kept, ancient abbey gardens with ruins. Quite a bit to explore, touch, feel and look at. Places to get something to eat and drink, plus a shop. Overall, lovely place to visit and relax.
  • A lovely place to visit in the summer and winter. The gardens are kept clean and the ruins are safe for kids to explore. There are so many squirrels here and they aren't shy to appro you. You can buy nuts for then at the ice cream shop in the gardens. The play park is more suited to children around 2 to 9. There's an avery which lately has had less birds in it and the abbey is beautiful. Situated at the bottom of the hill directly below the shopping center. Beautiful.
  • Lovely place to sit and relax. Lots of seating and fresh flowers. Lots of events happening all the time, only downside is that it closes at dusk but a nightie stroll would be nice!
  • Great place to spend a day walking around, enjoying the gardens, reading the information from the signs placed around. Especially nice during the spring while the flower are blooming.
