Lots of steep walk. I would not call Glover's place a Garden. Redeeming thing to this place was a view other than that tour was time filler.

Not a garden as one might expect (not THAT many flowers) but a beautifully landscaped Japanese gardens with ponds & statues. On various levels with slopes, steps & some cobbled paths but also with unobtrusive escalators to assist those less mobile/agile visitors. An inexpensive (approx £5) entrance for a few hours or more, tranquil wander or cafe rest stop.

this is a beautiful garden where you get great views from the top of the hill near the Residence - it is a fair way up but there is a travelator which will take you there but you also need to climb some stairs as well.

This park makes for a nice afternoon stroll if Nagasaki gets hot. The green is welcoming and it's very neatly done. The houses inside proved a glimbs into the life of old Nagasaki. Not a must do, but if you have time... go for it.

It is quite a big garden which has many different levels of height. It is nice places to have a tea or other refreshments. It gives an insight on how Europeans lived in Nagasaki for 100-140 years ago since one can visit a couple of the old houses.

Beautiful scenery as well as a great view of Nagasaki city. There is a large variety of plants, flowers and scenery to see here, as well as some history to be told. There are, as far as I noticed, no activities for children, so they would likely get bored pretty quickly. Bring your camera, an umbrella and your wallet for... More

Great experience top see where the famous Thomas Blake Glover ended up. I am originally from his home town of Fraserburgh in the North East of Scotland. Not well known in his home town but revered in Japan. Must have been a beautiful spot when he first went out to Japan. If you're in the area it's well worth a... More

To visit this attraction, people will experience in 2 sides: History and Beauty of garden and harbor view. History: this place was a house built in 1863 when Thomas Glover moved from Scotland to Nagasaki. Thomas Glover came to Nagasaki from Scotland and built his house in 1863 and this area became the garden of Glover. At that time Nagasaki... More

I found it nothing new, and nothing special either. Every exibitions, materials, and the points were no more than stereotypical forms. And it is expensive. But the view is quite impressive.
