Very well presented and the people working in the gardens were only too happy to give information on the plants , birds and animals of the area. Would liked to have had morning tea, looked lovely and not too pricy but time was against me. Gift shop had fantastic gifts.Glad I visited.

Whenever I've visited Shrewsbury, have 'always' meant to pop in but never made it. This time, after parking the car, made this the first port of call. Lovely little place and such a delightful shop at the back with a selection of 'different' cards and gifts for sale. Will definately go back again.

A lovely setting with a nice cafe and a selection of plants but it has the potential to offer much more especially if they could open up the old house properly.

great place for a sandwich and a relax in the lovely garden. Picked up some lovely wildlife plants and I love the wellies planters on the wall! Such a good idea, I'm stealing it.

Visited this lovely little place and was pleasantly surprised. The sun was shining and we had tea and cake in the garden. Perfect a must visit place.

Nice that this is in town centre, but it's not exactly enthralling. A few dying plants to buy, and some plaques to read, could be better

Almost like a secret garden, the SWT is close to the town centre with good parking nearby. It's full of good staff with a wealth of knowledge who will answer your every question. There are courses available as well as a good deal of other resources at hand. An enjoyable visit
