  • This is a family favorite from when the children were small and we played hide and seek round the fir trees to more recent leisurely Sunday stroll through the gardens, Peaceful and restful  more »
  • We visited with a two year six month child. Lots to see Nature and Quiz Trails. Good good but pricey. Will be back later in year to see more colour and changes.  more »

  • Really family friendly place. Sounds like a small thing (But it made a big difference) but the cafe made sure our 3 year old daughter's jacket potato was cut open extra wide to cool down quicker - and as parents know there are few things worse than a hungry child sat in front of a hot plate of food!! Gardens are fab with lots for kids to see & explore
  • Brilliant place to visit in the summer months. There are nature trails for the kids and plenty of sculptures and other points of interest for the adults. The cafe serves good food at a reasonable price and there's gorgeous outdoor seating for sunny days. The staff are always friendly and helpful too.
  • Gorgeous botanic gardens in the heart of beautiful Durham city. Good arboretum with well stocked North America and Asia collections as well as a bamboo grove. Really nice damp garden and good tropical greenhouses. Allow yourself a couple of hours to get round and then another half an hour for a cup of tea and a bowl of heir very good soup.
  • Awesome place to go and relax. Feels like meditation. Quite and nice, woth wonderful staff in the cafe
  • Beautiful quiet and peaceful, wonderful to walk around, acres of woods and gardens. Lots of benches so you can sit and enjoy the peace.
