We particularly enjoyed the Double-Walled Garden and its kitchen garden. Not the best garden we saw on our trip (that would be Aberglasney nearby, and the gardens at Powys Castle), but a worthy project that has some beautiful and well-maintained plantings. Nice place for a visit.

If you are in this area...you MUST visit here!! Wonderful place...fantastic gardens and planting, amazing temperate 'dome' and spectacular views! You need 2 days to fully explore and enjoy it...I must go back again and see the bits we missed!

Worth a whole day out with lots of lovely plants and flowers of course but also fantastic walks, lots of places to sit and admire panoramic views and a perfect place to relax. We went on a sunny Saturday afternoon but the size of the place meant that it wasn't at all crowded. Lovely day out

Beautiful park, fantastic plants, very well landscaped, very large diversity. The modern 'dome' with the endangered plants really was impressive. The little Japanese garden is a gem. You can easily spend more than one day here.

Thoroughly enjoyable few hours spent walking in the vast Botanic Gardens... Staff were helpful, and the specimens on display were fantastic.... The only wish was that they would put pictures next to the name of the plant on the name tag so we could work out which one was what!

A real surprise, with so much to offer - immaculate grounds, cafes and restaurants, gift shops, garden centre, conference facilities, etc. Wonderful wider walks beyond the formal part/ But the 'piece de resistance' must still be the Great Glasshouse, the largest single span one in the world, enclosing collections of plants from all over the world (and a cafe to...
