A must see, during a visit to Nagasaki. Glover Garden, is on Glover Hill, just up the road from the ANA Crowne Plaza hotel. Beautifully maintained, great views, historical significance, and easy access...a great way to spend a few hours...

Lovely gardens and extensive grounds. Don't get put off at the entry as it is impossible to see the full extent of the garden and properties you get entry to. 600 yen is a good price and well worth the money.

Its a beautiful place. The view is very nice. You can walk around to see the houses that foreigners used to stay in there but you need to pay for entrance fees.

This garden is located on the mountain and is absolutely beautiful to see. Not only the garden but the view you get on the harbour of nagasaki is breathtaking. From all the things I've visited this was by far the most beautiful. I'm glad I went here because it was the highlight of my trip to nagasaki.

We were not expecting the Garden to be what it was. Beautiful old houses, gardens, views. We spent about 60 minutes here just wandering and looking. Great value

It is a beautiful place with a European touch but a long, long walk. On the bright side, there's a few escalators and travelators that take you up.

Nice venue for a tour of the historical past of Nagasaki. Tickets are needed to enter the park, and the various houses are well kept.
