70 acres of beauty! It started raining so we left before seeing it all but what we saw was amazing. So many blooms of all colors, so many different plants and trees, so many different areas! This was one of the highlights of our UK trip!

It is a small and great place to visit on Summer. Have a sit, doing a picnic and walk.

You can see a lot of animals and enjoy the afternoon with a group of friends ou with you family!

It doesn't matter if its raining or the sun is shining, we love going here with our kids. Take a bag of nuts for the squirrels!

... even when it's cold! The visitor centre was great, too, and though I'm not that into plants or gardens, it was easy to spend an afternoon wandering. Did find it a bit difficult to get to, however.
