Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

We went there to relax, we did what we came for. A quiet place in a city where we felt at ease. It has a restaurant inside which sells self made cakes. Don't know how they make, and to be honest, I don't care. That...More

Lovely walking round these gardens and seeing the plants in the different glass houses. The photography exhibition in one of the houses were amazing too. A must stop is the Rose cafe/restaurant. Food and ambience excellent. So much choice and all served with a smile....More

Very well kept gardens with many wonders of the world. Great discovery trails which lead to landscape art. Cherry on the cake are the views over the city.
