  • Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to these gardens. Well laid out and a lot to see. Great views across the Dee estuary to North Wales. Very cheap to get in if you're a student! 
  • We visited on beautifully hot Sunday afternoon. After parking in the free car park, we went inside the new building and had lunch at the restaurant there. As it was busy, we were told there was a twenty to thirty minute wait for food, but it only took nineteen minutes for the five dishes we'd ordered to arrive. The food was average, so three stars here. Definitely needs air conditioning! The gardens themselves are amazingly landscaped, though I must say I'm disappointed they removed the grass hill you could roll down! There's plenty to explore: though I perhaps finding a bench and taking in the view. There's free wifi, but you'll need the username and password from the counter (20 down, 20 up).
  • Fantastic place. Been coming here since I was a nipper. Improvements made year after year. Always something for any and all ages. Beautiful flowers, plants and wildlife with superb views of Wales and the coast of Wirral.
  • Certainly worth a visit, you'll need a full day to get around all 64acres and see everything! Theres something to see in every month and a nice cafe, garden centre and gift shop
  • Very nice place to walk. Romantic, different stiles, lake with ducks. Create panorama
  • Fabulous place and it's so vast. We got married here in the gardens. The catering staff are amazing and so helpful and friendly.
