Having thought it was a small garden this is like walking into the Tardis.
Fish feeding is fun and then we had a guide, Michelle, telling us about the plants and their meanings, so interesting.
A very interesting and enjoyable morning.

I do not think they allow that, but not sure. There is a little spot with tables and chairs, so perhaps they do allow bringing in food, but did not see anyone eating anything there. No places to eat in the gardens... More
I do not think they allow that, but not sure. There is a little spot with tables and chairs, so perhaps they do allow bringing in food, but did not see anyone eating anything there. No places to eat in the gardens themselves, as only a few concrete benches scattered throughout the gardens. There are many restaurants nearby and a huge lawn area outside the gardens.
