We walked from the city centre to the gardens along the side of the river and through the islands, the signage could have been better but we had checked the location on the internet before we set off so knew where we were going. When we arrived we had tea, coffee and cakes in the cafe and although a large group had just placed a lunch order ahead of us, we were served very quickly and efficiently and enjoyed our refreshments on the decking overlooking the gardens.
The outside gardens themselves are quite compact but beautifully designed and colourful, with lots of spring flowers. The cactus house was delightful and intriguing with a wonderful range of specimens. The tropical house again had a wide variety of planting and was well laid out.
A surprisingly pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
