Finding this place in our little hire car was exciting to say the least! The return trip was even more exciting - ended up in the corner of a potato field at one point to let a large truck through on the very narrow road! All very worthwhile as the orchids are totally amazing ! I cannot believe how many... More

the world has some beautiful natural treasures and seeing orchids in their prime in such a magnificent setting is a truly exhilarating experience! It was such a bonus to see other plants used to enhance the botanical ambiance in this sublime treasure house.

Whilst I love flowers in general I am not an orchid enthusiast but even so I could appreciate the beauty displayed in the large greenhouse at the Foundation. Once you have walked round though there isn't much else to see or do but in fairness the entrance prices reflected the limitations. Our visit lasted probably no more then 30-40 minutes.... More

We visited in when the centre had just opened, which is the best time to do so according to the staff, so we had the centre to ourselves for a bit. Whilst not a big site the collection of Orchid species on display is fantastic, most if not all were in bloom with a great mix of natural and hybrid... More

Spent a wonderful hour here wandering amongst the orchids and talking to the super knowledgeable staff. Even if you are not a great Richie fan this is one of the best collections in the world. As for the reviewer who said £4.50 was too much to see a world class collection......?!!! Yes they are all in one large greenhouse, but... More

And who doesn't? The constantly changing display in the main arena will delight and inform you. Eric young started this collection and it has grown from strength to strength winning world wide top awards for their stunning results of their breeding programme. (I gather it takes from 4 to 10 years to produce an award winning orchid for display.) When... More

If you love flowers this is a must. The collection of orchids are truly amazing and so beautifully displayed, they are so perfect. The ladies at the desk the day we visited were really helpful with advice on orchid problems. Great for a rainy day.

If you like orchids, this is a must visit. The place has so many to see. The walk around the greenhouses only took about 30 minutes but there was such a variety of orchids to see if you were knowledgeable about them you could spend hours. Even for me as one without green fingers I enjoyed the visit.

I am a Jersey Girl and have never been to the orchid foundation before, but i have developed a love of orchids and decided to pay a visit! We loved it as soon as we walked in! There is a large variety of gorgeous orchids and i will definitely be going more often! The £4.50 entry fee was definitely worth... More
