“Free, refreshing, and colourful”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This large public space has a mixture of manicured areas ( including bowling greens and planted flower beds) and natural bubbling pools of hot, sulphur smelling water. Statues are scattered about which give interesting places to stop and pause.

“Stunning”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Even on a cold rainy winters day the gardens are full of flowers. Worth a stop even if just to strech your legs, take a photo and/or check out Museum and Bath Houses in the grounds

“Lovely relaxing gardens”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

A really lovely place for a stroll on a sunny day and lots of seats to relax and enjoy the gardens. There are also a couple of hot pools with steam that are worth seeing. The museum is very interesting and has a nice little cafe as well.

A lovely walk in the garden. Gardens include water gardens, rose gardens and annuals. Very well planned. With the Bathhouse in the background. Free to walk around.
