We spent most of our time having a look in the Art Tanks. Great displays and the artist in residence was most helpful in sharing information about his work.

We enjoyed the tropical plants etc, but particularly enjoyed the 'rainforest' boardwalk. Take repellent!

Great place for a free visit. Fantastic selection of plants with loads of explanations. Lots of shady parking. Well worth a quiet walk around some fantastic plant collections. Great to wind down here.
