Lovely walk through the park to the Cloisters. Fascinating place to wander. I particularly enjoyed the Medicinal Garden.

Thank you for coming! Did you know we use all medieval gardening techniques in our gardens? We are so glad you enjoyed them.

Are there things at the cloisters which might appeal to a five year old boy who likes art and is very engaged with any activity he does?
