Took some friends from out of town to Middleton Gardens. They were very surprised that such a quiet beautiful place exists in Enfield. Middleton has a lovely cafe and they have a few plants for sale. Well worth a leisurely stroll or picnic.

People already seem to have answered so all that's left is to say have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. And take your shopping bag because sometimes they have fruit, veg and flowers for sale. Hope that helps?
