You can easily pass a couple of hours wondering around this picturesque, historic garden. Admission prices may appear to be high at first ($27 for two adults), however after touring the gardens it became quite apparent that the money that is charged is necessary for keeping the grounds in such pristine conditions - so well worth the money. There is... More

Garden was worth the visit. A lot to see, except not enough flowers. Paths were easy to walk. Within walking distance of B&B.

I have visited Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens twice, I thought it would be too expensive to just pay for the "garden" for the first time, but the place is much bigger than you think.

Stopped in to fill a few hours of open itinerary...pleasantly surprised. Garden was in full bloom and very impressive. As a photographer it was quite a visual and content rich feast. Plenty of benches in both sun and shade overlooking the gardens if you're into just relaxing and enjoying nature.

The gardens are nicely laid out and well-maintained. They are very attractive. My wife and I are both into landscaping with natives so were somewhat disappointed with the lack of native flora. However most people wouldn't notice that. We enjoyed the trail that goes through the tidal marsh.

We go every year. See something different each time. LOVE IT! I like the vegetable garden part. I learn something new each time that I can take back and try on my own garden
