Loved visiting these gardens, quite a unique place to visit and was recommended by friends. Sculpture was well presented in the gardens with some awesome views. The cafe sold yummy pies. Recommend you visit if in the area.

Be prepared for a wait, or order then wander the plants, as we waited a long time for a very simple order & 3 others also complained about time taken to be served. Pricey for what it is.More
