Really only saw the palm house as it started to rain. Enjoyed the scents and colour of the plants. The quiet ambience of the house was a welcome break from the city traffic. Located so conveniently to our hotel. A place we will revisit - especially the rose garden

Expected this to be more like Kew Gardens, but it wasn't. The Gardens themselves are very nice and would be beautiful in the summer, however the Palm House is very disappointing. It contains a number of plants, but unlike Kew, it has no labels or names explaining about the plants, and there are lots of the same thing. The most... More

Not huge compared with somewhere like Edinburgh of Kew Gardens, but worth a wander if you've some spare time while visiting. Perhaps wait for sunny weather.

Not very big, but beautiful to look at regardless. Visited on a sunny day which meant the surrounding park was busy and pretty

The Palm House is closed when I visited at 3pm. Guess need to be earlier next time. The Palm House is not so big from the outside. The park is a relaxing one.

It's not really my thing, but the wife wanted to go. Its a victorian Glass house, with a beautiful frame and a collection of the best smelling flower I have ever smelt. . . Especially in February. Nice to get in out of the cold too, with its underfloor heating. The grounds are nice too, but it was to cold... More

We went on a drizzly February day, so only really got to enjoy the Palm House, as the roses are not in bloom yet, the Tropical Ravine is closed for extensive renovations, and couldn't really sit in the park itself because of the rain. Enjoyed the Palm House - mainly for the architectural aspect. I like how free you are... More

Every time I go there, I can relax. In the summer time I love the roses. This place is very nice and peaceful.
