A lovely, tranquil morning in beautiful,well-kept gardens. I can't agree with other reviwers who say this is neglected, although I notice no review since April 2012 so it may be that they have done a lot of work in the last year. Botanists or keen gardeners will appreciate the comprehensive list of species with clear numbering. Those who just come for a lovely, mainly shady walk around will enjoy the tranquility (we arrived at 9 am and were literally the only visitors). Some really good views out over the coast too. Many different bird species, especially humming birds everywhere. The peace and beauty makes it very hard to reconcile one's thoughts with the extremely bloody history of the place (too briefly outlined on the display notices at various points). A small terrace bar for a cold Piton finishes it nicely, however the much advertised and boasted "souvenir shop" is closed and they sell only a few postcards etc. - A real sales opportunity missed for the owners.
All in all highly recommended for a couple of very pleasant, relaxing hours.
