Visited decently and was pleasantly surprised by the work that has been carried out since our previous visit in 2012. The gardens are very clean and litter free, the flowers even at this time of year are really pretty, plus the odd glimpse of a butterfly or bird. There is also a beautiful pond with Koi carp and the whole... More

Very nice gardens with a great deal of vegetation from across the globe, some are just outdoors and some tropical ones indoors. Think in advance about finding a proper parking spot as it can be a real problem in the neighborhood.

Very pretty and lush, even in December. Tricky to negotiate if you are unfirm or in high heels! Close by the cable car, so you can visit both attractions in one day.

Nature reserve has on going redevelopment, which meant some of the enclosures were not up to standard but still well worth a visit. The gardens are well kept, with a good variety of plant species.
