“A gem ticked away in Norwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

It is a quiet & peaceful garden, well maintained & situated near the Roman Catholic cathedral & walking distance from & to the city centre. It is great fun during the frog season! Well worth the visit any time of the year though.

“Quirky Victorian quarry garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Steep sided Victorian quarry garden just round the corner from the RC cathedral and five minutes from the city centre this garden is full of character where Italianate statuary meets Victorian Gothic quirky stone masonry. Don't expect exotic unusual specimen plants. Do expect a quiet place to spend an hour among beautiful plants with lots of ferns and thoughtful planting schemes that you could copy at home. For £2 (VR post box serves as an honesty box) definitely recommended.

“Spring at Plantation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We stopped by here on a walk around Norwich. There is an honesty box for the entrance fee. We stayed for about 30 minutes, walking around reading all of the descriptions and imagining what it must be like in the summer when the flowers are in full bloom.

I lovely place to check out. your be amazed how beautiful this is, minutes away from the hustle of Norwich. Even better to go when all is silent, in the summer months as the sun is coming up.

Lovely garden, full of interesting nooks, and colourful planting. On a warmer day would be nice to sit and read.
