This place was a real find. I was only disappointed that I didn't have my grand children with me. There were lots of themed areas and lots of water features. There was a restaurant on site as well.

An interesting place with a variety of fantasy gardens from around the world. It was a bit smaller than I was expecting but certainly worth a visit. The cafe is very pleasant and the cake is worth a try!
