Lovely place to go and relax my daughter found it very interesting and she is 8 years old and easily bored, they definitely should make more secret gardens

A series of beautifully designed little gardens, with plenty to see, touch and smell in each one. The kids loved feeding the fish and discovering surprises in every garden. Very reasonable admission fee and a lovely little cafe as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review of your visit to the gardens. The gardens always have something to offer no matter what time of the year but at the moment they are looking particularly stunning.
