“Lovely place to visit.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Just a super nice garden/greenhouse to visit especially if one has been in a lot of indoor museums! A nice break to walk around and see some unique plants and flowers in the UK.

“Beautiful Oasis in a bustling city”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Worth a trip. Only two of the city tour buses go out here but it was nice to walk around and escape the crowds of the city.

“colourful”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We were recently given an Afternoon Tea Tour gift to the Botanic Gardens and we had an excellent time. From arriving at the entrance and being greeted by Constance, our very friendly and well informed guide, to the Afternoon Tea, we had a really enjoyable visit. The Gardens themselves are well laid out and signposted with all the plants and trees having small signs telling you what they are and where they come from (a big help for me! ) The Afternoon Tea was very good with very attentive and courteous staff. All in all a very good day out.
