Gorgeous building in the wall of a walled Garden. Quiet and tranquil, away from the town hubbub. A place for a nice family walk.

Whilst the architecture may be unique, the site is distinctly average. There is not much to see apart from the Pineapple itself and the walks around the grounds were muddy at the time of my visit. As others have said it is hard to find the road to the site.

The actual pineapple itself is beautiful but it's so disappointing to see the surroundings in such poor upkeep.First of all the road leading to it is difficult to find and once you do you wish you hadn't! It's more potholes than it is road! If you've got low suspension then access is a no no,probably not worth the risk to... More

Nice visit to the pineapple. Little walks surrounding the area. Not too much to actually see at venue but you can see the splendour of the architecture.

Yes it's nice to see but there is nothing else there. The grounds could be better and opening up the building would at least bring in extra business. Better boards for explaining the history would be at least something. Visit if you have a special interest but don't rush
