A bit disappointing due to a lack of information about the tree and it's significance. It's big, old and propped up with a frame!

This was my second visit to the Hippocrates tree and I was disappointed to see that the area surround it has been left to dilapidate with some graffiti.

Contrary to the detractors, the tree might not have been the original one from Hippocrates time but it is worth a visit, but planted around the time of Henry the 8th would you look as good.

We nearly missed this if I'm being quite honest, we only noticed it as the tree is cordened off by metal gates and a lot of people were taking pictures so we figured it was of some importance. We read the history plaque by the tree and decided it was quite fascinating, took a few pictures and walked on.
Not something I could sit under and just watch for hours...which I saw some people do!!
