If you like old established unusual and rare trees and plants then this is well worth an hour or two of your time. If you like peace and tranquillity then you could find it here too.

The place is not very well kept, but it is still a good way to spend a few hours resting, relaxing under the trees and walking around with a friend. It is free.

Undergoing some renovaitons, so not all glass houses were accessible in April 2014. Great colleciton of plants, flowers and trees, but naming plaques could be better. Some huge old trees and quiet forest to explore.
