  • I enjoyed visiting the Elizabethan Garden! Friendly staff and beautiful greenhouses where plants can be purchased. They were in the process of decorating for Christmas and it was all very beautiful.  more »
  • I have visited several times and always love my visit. If you are looking for a great place to hold a photo shoot this is it.  more »
  • We were here in October, and the gardens were still attractive, but the spring and summer are probably spectacular. There is a good walking trail through the garden, and it's a peaceful spot to visit.  more »

  • A treat. Even though we were out of season, they still had plants to see and the gardens were well placed with statues and view.
