There was a seating for the guests and a table for them to sign the register. Over the other side there was a table... More

I have discovered this garden by accident when I was looking for the station of the cableway. Very well maintained, great plant diversity, information panels, benches, some a little hidden, which I particularly liked, it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a rest. A small oasis in the bustling city, free admission. Unfortunately, the tortoise makes a blackboard... More

We got Married in the Open Air Theatre in the botanical gardens and it was the perfect setting. All the staff at the gardens are so lovely and helpful. We used a wedding organiser (I use that term loosely) and we wished that we had dealt directly with the gardens and the staff there.

This park is definitely worth a visit - the gardens are peaceful and beautiful. The small wildlife park was good and being able to go into the lemur enclosure and get so close to the lemurs was an unexpected bonus.

These are relatively small gardens and most of the plants are fron South Africa. Pretty never the less. Bird song might be fake but it did add to the atmosphere although to be fair there were some real birds.

We had our wedding on 24th April 2015. Could not have been more perfect. What a setting. The beautiful natural surroundings added the special touches to our photos, the light was perfect. Could not have been happier. So beautiful.

Quite extensive gardens on the side of the hill. Quiet and plenty of places to sit and paths to wander and sniff the plants. An open air theatre & little dell (inaccessible except for couples getting married)!

Lovely gardens one word of warning, some of the plants are dangerous to children, my kids ended up in tears and we needed a chemist due to a reaction after contact. This also happened to other children in the area. Why? no one knew and I can't advise on the cause.
