To Eric Young his orchids were his family and it was lovely to see this amazing collection and know that his work is being carried on. A short film of his life would add to the pleasure of the visit.

If you make your way down the tiny back roads of Jersey to the Orchid centre you're in for a treat. The colour and varieties of the orchids are truly stunning. Even my friend who has many orchids at home couldn't get over the huge variety they have here. They are all presented in very natural settings in the greenhouses... More

I visited this attraction a couple of years ago with my god mother from Zimbabwe. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & would highly recommend a visit especially if you enjoy very special orchids!

this was an absolute must for orchid lovers, but beware it is not a huge collection so you wont need more than an hour to complete your visit SO if travelling by bus be careful you arent stranded as infrequency of the buses means you have to hang around for an hour waiting for the bus to arrive

We paid a visit to the Eric Young Orchid Foundation and it delivered as advertised with lots of orchids on display, particularly in the main house but also in the growing greenhouses. We seemed to wile away 45 minutes happily enough... Not an easy place to find but once you are there parking is easy and the site is fully... More

The display is beautiful, i did not realise there were so many orchids in the world. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, but it was the very devil of a place to find!

DON'T MISS THIS. I adore orchids and visit RHS Wisley Gardens regularly to look at them and grow them myself, but THIS - well it blew me away. I have never seen anything like it! In a small hidden venue there are shapes, colours, sizes of orchids beyond my imaginings. They have won many medals and I am seriously not... More

I shot Video, they gazed and talked. I have the evidence, they have the memory of a lovely gentle hour or so. The display is most impressive and the orchids so beautiful - even to a layman like me - but I love flowers and gardens. The individual Orchids are quite absorbing in their beauty and elegance. The layout means... More

If like me you love orchids, this place is worth a visit. I didn't realise there was that many different types.
