Close to the centre of Perth - we walked there via the bridge over the river, running alongside the railway line - Branklyn is a wonderful place. Staff are great, there's a lovely little shop, plenty of seats around the garden, and it's beautiful. You can hear the traffic, but it is peaceful and well worth a visit.

A very small National trust garden, but very beautiful. There are meandering paths on various levels which lead to different views of the many flower beds, which are packed with plants. Well worth a visit.

Small but packed garden. Have visited several times at different times of year and always found something to see. Friendly helpers in shop and lovely selection of plants especially when they sell those unusual ones that they have grown themselves.

Small by open-to-the-public garden standards but beautifully kept by the team there. Staff and volunteer guides are friendly and very helpful. A really pleasant oasis of colour and tranquility right in the City.

There was very little display in the gardens and not a single person in sight I spent about ten minutes here as there was little here.

I always like taking in the seasons at Branklyn whether spring daffs and tulips or the vibrant azaleas & Rhoddies through the Summer . The golden colours of Autumn are now and it is great to walk through this peaceful sanctuary located not far from the town centre .There is also a small shop selling a wide range of plants... More

The garden was well set out but a bit "plain" in Autumn, with most of the plants not in flower. Perhaps they should "discount" out of season

A varied selection of plants, for the small 2 acre site. So, great to not have to walk too far for such a collection.
