  • We have been several times and it is always impressive. There is so much to see that one really needs several days to give all the areas proper attention. For us it is way better than the Eden project - but in England not many people seem to have heard of it. They need to improve their marketing (but then it would be over-run with visitors). My favourite bit is the Rill which runs down the Broad Walk - I like 'jumping' over it - and I'm 64, so it must be huge fun for younger visitors!
  • Our second visit here and we enjoyed it just as much as last year. The garden is beautiful any time of the year. We saw lots of gorgeous flowers and the butterfly house was brilliant. We prefer the domed garden here to the Eden project despite the fact it is slightly smaller. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The entire garden is wheelchair accessible with wheelchairs and scooters available to hire.
  • Visited last weekend (October 2017). It was a thoroughly enjoyable visit, well worth the entry price. It is well laid out and has plenty of variety, impressive without being overwhelming. Encouraging for the average (and below average) gardener, and with extensive grounds for wandering around. Loved the Great glasshouse - excellent!
  • We love the National Botanic Gardens; therefore, we visit around three times of year. The whole site is a stunning vista of plants and horticultural delights. Having bought a number of plants from the garden centre, we have been delighted with the results. Well worth a visit. :-))
