  • Amazing gardens with a lot to see - plenty of very distinct areas. Great way to spend an afternoon. Just be careful to actually pay the extra admission for the butterfly house when you arrive as they will not accept payment at the actual door of the butterfly area, and whilst there is signage to mention this at the entrance to the gardens, it's easy to miss.
  • Highly enjoyable, lovely people, lady at butterfly house, so pleasant, could have stayed with her all day. Young lady in cafe, great customer care. Will definitely return many times. Great value for money.
