A decent place to visit, a replanted garden with some remnants of the previous garden. The hothouses worth a visit. Probably best in spring and early summer.

Really though provoking exhibition by Luke Jerram about perception. I was impressed by how many plants were packed into this relatively small space and the display boards are well done and informative. Remember to visit the greenhouse across the car park before you go. The...More

Kept meaning to try this, installation (impossible garden) convinced. Really good value at £5:00. Small enough to manage, interesting enough for decent visit. Volunteers very knowledgable. Fabulous tea room, lovely to sit outside and enjoy view.
