We spent a few hours here on Monday, just enjoying it all. As our children are quite young, four & six years we didn't know if it would interest them but they loved it.

I went to the Botanic gardens on my own which was such a shame because they were amazing and there are lots of people I know would have loved it there! Even if you are not a big fan of gardening or plants this is a really nice trip and you could spend hours there if you chose to. The... More

Went with my sister, my Aunty and my daughter. We had a beautiful day sun shining and lovely warm. Loved the cactus house. The flowers in the garden are beautiful.

Close to the City Centre a visit to these gardens is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Entrance is free and the gardens are accessible by both bus and car. There are two restaurants with a good selection of food. Well worth a visit.

The Botanic Gardens are a beautiful, colourful, peaceful place to visit - you don't even need to be interested in gardening to enjoy a visit!

Paradise for anyone who loves nature - free entry. Plenty of wildlife - especially squirrels, friendly grounds wardens who are happy to share knowledge. The cork oak is amazing and the edibles garden a delight for young kids. Visit in late August and check out the mulberry trees near the entrance. Kids will stuff their faces with these delicious berries.
