Although we have lived in the Abbey for over 30 years, this was our 1st visit to these gardens. The grounds are spread over 35 acres and you will need a full day to view everything. Our highlight was the national gardening centre which is...More

Visited many times always something new to see, open day & fete's are an excellent way to buy healthy plants. Good cafeteria. Looking forward to the gardening talks coming soon.
