“Great botanical garden”

Tresco Abbey Garden & Valhalla Collection
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Tresco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2014

£12 entry fee a little steep. But a beautiful garden nonetheless. Similar to Abbotsbury, Dorset and Bodnant, North Wales in terms of our enjoyment. The boat trip and the sea views make this perhaps a little more special.

The abbey gardens are a must do while in Tresco. In fact it is probably worth visiting the island just to visit the gardens. We have been before but every time the range of flowers is different so it is always worth repeating. We spent the whole day here having a very pleasant lunch in the restaurent and ended with a walk round the Valhalla figure head collection, a reminder of just how dangerous the islandc can be. A great day out.

As we made our umpteenth visit to the garden we are still overwhelmed by the spectacular panoramas from all angles and every time we later discover that we have missed a bit!

A must-see when visiting Tresco. It's a wonderful place and you can easily spend all day wandering around. Nice café or you can bring your own lunch.

Couldn't have chosen a better time; longest day of the year and stunning blue sky. Gardens a profusion of colour. You are in awe of all you see at every turning and keep thinking of superlatives.
