Jersey has many attractions worth visiting, but this is a real gem. The excellent greenhouse display of flowers includes many varieties that I had not seen before, and was perhaps more impressive than Kew and RHS Wisley in this respect.

Great display of a large variety of common and more uncommon orchids. Although there is very little in the way of explanation, the orchids are quite beautiful and delicate. They are artfully arranged. Bring your camera and macro lens.

Can be difficult to get to by public transport - but pleased that we made the effort. Only 200yds from Victoria Village bus stop. The display area is relatively small but the display is fantastic. Even if you aren't a passionate gardener you can't fail but be impressed by the variety of the plants here. Only a small serve yourself... More

Buried in the heart of the island – fortunately well signposted – this is a ‘must see’ for anyone with even a passing interest in orchids. We can believe its claim to be ‘one of the finest orchid collections in the world’ is totally justified – we were ‘blown away’ with the collection! It is a foundation, growing and developing...

The sight of the amazing variety of beautiful orchids that are on display is breathtaking. The accessible greenhouses are fairly small compared with the total number on the site. The catering facility is fairly primitive and the grounds around the greeenhouses are not particularly large or interesting, although it would be possible to have a picnic there if required. A...

Absolutely stunning is how I describe the orchids on display. Whether you are an orchid lover or not, you cannot fail to be impressed. A magnificent collection of orchids on display and you can photograph them all. It is billed as one of the finest collections of orchids in the world and I certainly have never seen anything like it... More

A wonderful way to spend an hour or so amongst beautiful flowers in a lovely warm environment. There is a wide variety of orchids and the way the flowers are displayed enable you to view the flowers close up. This is good value for money, to see wonderful flowers in a quality environment. There is a small cafe offering snacks... More
