“Lovely place to spend an hour.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This place is a delight, from the interest in the glasshouses, to the beautifully laid out and labelled garden beds.
This is a place not only for hard core garden lovers, but a great quiet oasis in a busy city.
Well done!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Don't miss spending a little time in England's first Botanic Garden. It was very relaxing and peaceful. A place to get away from the crowds. You can sit in front of the entrance and enjoy a picnic lunch. The gardens are very well kept.
