Extremely disappointing. Whilst some of the orchids are beautiful you can walk around this place in minutes and not even have somewhere decent to enjoy a coffee. Instead coffee is served from self service flasks and money collected in a basket. At least have a decent coffee shop.

The site is dedicated to orchids and has a good indoor display. The visitor gets a leaflet about the different types of orchids. As a non-specialist, I found it quite difficult to tie the signs in with the relevant plants. They are very attractive but I found a short visit was all I required. The site is a short walk... More

Lots of orchids of every colour and shape. Some of them very alien looking. If you like orchids this is the place to go. It is not open every day.

If you like orchids you will love this, when we visited most of the orchids were in flower and were a delight to see, we have taken some wonderful photo's which we intend to print off, whilst we were there we could purchase a cup of coffee and we also bought a lovely illustrated brochure, well worth a visit.

thought the displays were brilliant, and such a wide variety of species also the chance to buy such beautiful specimens at such reasonable prices

If you like plants and orchids you will love this place. Collection built up over many years by Eric Young & now maintained as an attraction with his name. The main covered display area aims to maintain a constant display of orchids by moving plants from its other glasshouses as needed, producing a very professional display, the envy of many... More

Whilst on holiday we visited this attraction. We were let in for no charge as me and my wife were there as part of holidays for heroes. My wife loves orchids so she loved the orchid foundation as we had them for our wedding flowers. It isn't a huge attraction but it is thoroughly interesting and if you are into... More

Wonderful displays of stunningly beautiful orchids in a natural setting, Not very big, and it doesn't take long to see it all, but well worth a visit. Contrary to the comments of other visitors, we found the place quite easily as it is well signposted from most directions. You can get a cup of tea or coffee here, too. Nothing... More

What an amazing collection of Orchids. Some I didn't even know about. Displays changed every 6 weeks. On the Jersey Pass list or £4.50 adult £1.50 child 10-4 wed to sat. Wear light clothing as it can be very warm in here.

While in Jersey in July 2014, we were encouraged to visit the Foundation, and it was a great choice. I have several orchids myself, and they are by far my favourite houseplant. But the display that we were so honored to be able to walk through, was spectacular!! What a lovely place. We learned so very much about Orchids and... More
