We visited on a lovely sunny day so the outside exhibits all looked good, there was an interesting range of unusual plants from different parts of the world in the dome. We enjoyed looking across to Paxton's Tower & the next door cottage as we were staying there & we had spent the week looking down towards the dome. We had a nice lunch in the café & were impressed with the range of products in the shop..

Some parts of this are excellent especially the glasshouse but this is a young garden still and more time will bring more fullness to the planting. There is a lot of land devoted to the garden but not fully used. The plus side of this is that it is possible to explore the worked on areas in a reasonable time.
We enjoyed our visit here and will be interested in seeing it in a different season. Staff were friendly and informative.

Had a wonderful day out at this excellent facility. So much to see and do and everything clearly signposted so that the visitor is not left stranded. The restaurant is good with reasonably priced food although some thought could be given to the management of queues so that those wishing to purchase hot food are kept separate from those wishing cold snacks.

We went here on a slightly rainy day and it didn't disappoint.
Plenty of garden sections to look at, as well as the house, indoor dome, gift shop - which I felt was a tad overpriced. Positive - was the entry ticket was valid for 7 days

Good for everyone, not just plant lovers, beautiful setting & views, calm and peaceful, lots of school groups but all enthralled, well behaved and quiet. Cafeteria reasonably priced and good quality with much local produce. The ticket is valid for re entry for 7 days too.
