It's a very good small botanical garden - nice uphill walk for about 2k - deal with the steps / it will do you good

Mostly greenery, plants and trees. Not a lot of colours. No cafe as advertised so was a little disappointed.

Despite it really being the wrong time of year to fully appreciate the beauty of the gardens we very much enjoyed the stroll around this well kept oasis of shade. The planting is interesting and the natural cover encourages many birds to the gardens.

Reasonable price to get in and you can stay as long as you like. Many plants and different specimens. Interesting to see what the plants look like for the spices we use every day. Nice pond with water lilies. I like to sit on the seat in the shade and meditate and listen to the birds after a stroll around.... More

It was ok to spend an hour, but it's small and not so varied in species. There's little information about the plants. I was disappointed and wouldn't go back.

I spent about 1.5hrs here. Well worth the visit. I passed on Loro park because I don't want another tourist filled Exp, rather be around nature and local... More

These gardens were begun in 1788 to acclimatise tropical plants before taking them to the mainland. It therefore has lots of mature trees including an impressive fig, from the Caribbean and South America. It's peaceful and shady, set out in a series of beds and pathways. Plants are flowering all the year round but the waterlily ponds were inevitably a... More

A really charming garden, fragrant and jam-packed with fascinating and exotic plants from sub-tropical and arid regions across the world. Perfect to visit in the morning before it's warm enough for the beach. And before the coaches arrive. Our party have just a passing interest in gardening but were captivated. The cacti were the favourites along with the extraordinary Australian... More
