A beautifully kept, tranquil garden just a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle. A real hidden gem full of beauty and wonder. Please pay the admission via the honesty box to help the upkeep of this truly stunning place.

A beautiful garden, kept perfectly by volunteers, to enter it is a £2 donation for each person but is a very nice place to go if you are passing by.

Perfect place to relax and let time go by. My 9 month old loves to crawl around on the grass watching the butterflies and listening to the birds. It really is a hidden gem!

We're very sorry to hear this. We are an historic garden, with one entrance, and there is no parking other than nearby streets, or city centre car parks. We recommend city run car parks rather than private car parks as problems such as you describe...More
