  • We had a lovely afternoon here with a visit to the new butterfly house, a great selection of butterflies that were very inquisitive and landing all over us. A lovely garden to walk round and several greenhouses with a selection of exotic plants

  • Brilliant I have been going here for years it has so much beauty I keep returning I would recommend to everyone. There's nature walks for your kids and fun pitstops to sit and rest.
  • It is a lovely botanic garden, featuring lots of greenhouses with plants from all over the world, activities for little kids, a pond, etc. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Bonny place.. Nicely kept as well as interesting for the kids..
