The perfect place for an afternoon stroll (weather permitting!). I'm not really a plant person, but I still always enjoy a visit to the gardens. It's wonderful to see the huge established trees, and the roses are gorgeous when they are in bloom. There are so many birds to look at in the aviary - watching the parrots and trying to make them talk is a very good way for half an hour to go by without one noticing.
Not that it should detract from my rating, but I find the ducks by the restaurant a bit aggressive. You can get food for them from the visitors' centre.
