The gardens are beautiful. Nice and spacious. My kids aged 6 and 3 loved it. However, it is very noisy. The roads around the park have cars and trucks all day

We had a lovely 3+ hours here today. Our daughter loved the Easter bunny activities. The grounds are lovely and parking is free! We also really enjoyed the owls and butterflies. Great day out over Easter school holidays.

Lovely place to have a walk round - went in the butterfly house - very quiet - small yes but you can spend as long as you want. Agree the cafe looked a bit pricey - nice morning out.

Yes the 132 heading towards Bexleyheath, leaves Eltham Church Well Hall Road (Stop G) and can stop at Gravel Hill Close (Stop F). Hall Place is a 3 minute walk from there.
