A great place to relax and unwind in the city. We spent several hours wandering through the various plants and enjoying the beautiful weather.

OK so you wouldn’t expect Kew Gardens but this was really disappointing - particularly for 6 euros a head. Overgrown, dirty, badly maintained - this could be such s lovely place as it has a lot of lovely specimens but goodness knows where the gate...More

Low rating as this was a very negative experience. We would have loved to have walked around but the entrance is 12 euros for 2 people. We only had a 20 Euro note so they would not let us in. The lady showed me she...More

Well worth a visit if you are interested in plants. Not the tidiest of gardens, but investigation reveals some novelty. Best time is the spring and autumn especially in those weekends when resellers bring plants for sale.

We were looking forward to our visit but were a bit disappointed to be honest. I wasn’t expecting Kew Gardens but it really should be better than this for your 6 Euros. No gardeners in evidence and you can see the results: some areas with...More
