We chose to visit later 4-6 to avoid crowds. However what you are not told when you then pay the full price is that 2 of the areas close at 4 pm. The water features are all wonderful, as are the tree schemes but there...More

Huge thanks to Trevor, the guide who went above and beyond for my friends and I today and gave us a fantastic tour of the Poison Garden when we were pressed for time. An utter legend and a really knowledgable man!

Found the gardens too formal and symmetrical for my liking but a lot of work in design and function has been put in. Had to see it

We visited the gardens with our disabled, wheelchair bound Mum. 3 OAP's totalled £35.00. Limited movement around the gardens with a wheelchair. Could see the waterfall and wheel around the maze. The two cafe sites were only selling snacks and drinks, no meals. We wheeled...More
