In retrospect, these were not the best gardens I've ever been to, however these are the best gardens I've been to for free. There weren't any flowers really when we went, perhaps too late or too early, but the whole place was very lush and green. The lawns are perfectly trimmed and the trees are all nicely kept and growing. It's a bit hard to get around while next to the Chinese hills, but we managed okay. We paid the 1 pound to get map of the gardens which I highly recommend! There aren't many maps around the place and it's easy to get lost. We were expecting them to be a lot bigger than they were based on everyone's reviews. This does not take a whole day!! We skipped the glass house, but even if we hadn't, it still would not have been a whole day or even half a day for that matter. The art exhibit in the gallery in the center was strange, but hey it was free art. Worth a visit here, the Queen Mother's Garden was gorgeous and the large hedge they have is straight out of Harry Potter.
