  • Beautiful gardens, you can have a picnic here. There is also a playground for children and a cafe. More benches in the tree walking area would be great, as sometimes the place is quite busy.
  • Great local museum. A lot of development over recent years and now has a great range of exhibits, including plenty of interactive things. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Beautiful gardens surrounding a museum. A very pleasant place to sit outside and eat lunch.
  • Lovely cafe and great gardens. Kids play area.
  • Lovely place to spend a few hours but not a whole day.
