These "medicinal" gardens are older than Kew and the guided tour (which I think runs from March to October inclusive) puts the history of the gardens into historical context. The cafe was good and it's a hidden gem in the heart of London.

The garden was much bigger than we were expecting based on reviews (although don't expect something the size of Kew) and we very happily spent 3 hours wandering around enjoying the gardens. Wonderful variety of plants and the gardens are very well maintained. We came...More

Only guide dogs and other assistance dogs are allowed in. This is the same as Kew Gardens and all the other botanic gardens I know.
