Beautiful orchids in a lovely setting. I didn't think I was an orchid fan but I do love flowers so visited a few years ago and have been going back every year since. Wonderful.

What an amazing collection of Orchids. all arranged in a rain forest background flowering throughout the seasons at different times. Covered so can be done in the rain. The variety is staggering and sometimes you have to look very closely to discover yet another tiny gem hidden on a log. We spent 1 1/2hrs there and could have stayed longer... More

This is an absolutely stunning venue. The display of orchids is breathtaking. Photography is encouraged offering the visitor the opportunity to produce some fantastic images. Well worth a visit.

If you like orchids, you must visit here. Even if you don't like Orchids, this is a nice place to visit. Better by car, although a bus service does stop very close, but can be 2hrs between buses, limited service.

I regard myself as someone who enjoys his garden (and gardening - indoors and out) but I certainly wouldn't call myself any sort of expert, so it was with a 'passing interest' that I visited the orchid foundation. I really didn't know a lot about orchids either but I came away so enthralled by the displays - and the sheer... More

Enjoyable visit although it's quite hard to find and it would be better were there more of an explanation as to what happens there, drinks are available but you have to make them yourself, the fee isn't huge and is worth a visit

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...
