“A haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

A very pleasant place to stroll through, beautiful trees, sweeping lawns, lots of birds. The Tropical Ravine is charming - a little brick-built Victorian version of the Eden Project - especially welcoming on a dismal cold day! The elegant Palm House is also worth seeing - it is just a very beautiful thing.

“chill out zone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Botanic gardens is haven to chill out in on a warm summers day, the museum on a rainy day & the botanical palm house is perfect for a taste of almost tropical warmth when its too cold outside. the history of the buildings & park are very impressive as well. the restaurant in the museum is a bit of a let down but there are many good places nearby like the french bakery, boojum or cayenne

“Good place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Botanic gardens is small and has not got much to it. It is however a good place to go and relax, especially on good spring/summer day. On good days the park can be very busy and seem over crowded because of its size. I have always enjoyed walking through it at any opportunity and enjoyed many great days there.
