We found the gardens without any trouble. We did park at the 'bottom' of the gardens where there is only parking on the side of the road. We didn't realise there is a purpose built car park at the 'top' of the gardens! It was perfectly fine where we left the car!
We spent a few hours wandering around the gardens and enjoying the views, sights, smells and educational treats provided in the park. If a small map or booklet could have been provided to help guide us around and explain things a bit more it would have been great. It is entirely possible they existed and we just missed them.
The cafe at the top of the gardens is a little more upmarket than a cafe!! We felt a little underdressed and raggedy after spending a few hours in the hot sun!! We could have sat outside away from the more respectably dressed patrons but we didn't want to miss out on the live music provided indoors. It also allowed us to have a magnificent view over the gardens as we ate our wonderful food. Again this is not a soup and sandwich cafe! We ate a traditional brothy rice dish and a delicious black noodle squid dish. Both of us cleared our plates!
I would recommend the day out to anyone. I would recommend they try to locate the upper car park for piece of mind! Maybe start the day with a nice meal in the restaurant and allow it to digest as you meander down through the gardens before returning uphill to your car.
