This is a great place to visit. Easily spent a day following the trails and looking at the formal areas. Nice places to eat and plenty of parking. Things for kids to play on to. Definitely worth a visit.

Recent touring holiday of Wales, accompanied most of the time by Welsh rain, so thought the massive greenhouse (therefore under cover!) would be a good way to spend an afternoon. It is. Well worth a visit. Not yet as spectacular as RHS Wisley - but...More
