We liked it so much we became members. Well maintained gardens in the heart of the city and every time we go there is something different to see. Our daughter likes going too and exploring all the different paths. Good for impromptu picnics.

The history behind this place is just as wonderful as the garden itself. It's not a big place like other gardens in the area, but never the less its a must see.

cannot recommend this place for couples and if you just want to 'get away from it all'! Great for a picnic or celebratory drink in this secret garden!

Finding the Plantation Garden was one of the best things i've done since moving to Norwich. It's such an unusual space but peaceful and curious. A must visit!
