The artificial lakes are symmetrical and the water jets are beautiful to see (when activated...). The shapes of the trees is astonishingly interesting. You can seat on a bench and relax before taking your next walking trip around the city.

Although we visited during January there were varying plants that were in bloom. It is a child friendly place with a play area and a 'small' animal section. Look for the turtles in the pool in the main gardens.

The Botanical Gardens are utterly spellbinding. I visited them on a scorching hot day and they were perfect for taking a slow walk around and to just soak in the surroundings.

I have been to many botanical gardens in the UK and I'm sorry to say that this was the worst. No winter tidying had been done. No jaw dropping moments of just look at that plant. Very uneven paths. The whole place could do with rejuvenation.

Lovely wander around this free-of-charge attraction with informative plaques and seating to soak up the atmosphere. Very impressed with the public conveniences - clean with toilet paper, soap and dryer

Lots of up and down and stairs aplenty - so if you are not mobile this could be a tough attraction to enjoy. There are lots of interesting sections within the gardens. When we visited there was working ongoing so it was not at its best. There are toilet facilities in the gardens which some may find useful. Plenty of... More

A lovely place to spend an hour or so on a sunny day. A variety of well established plants, places to picnic and you might even see a monkey. Free.
