This is a wonderful area for walks and for the kids to play. Many people were out with their dogs just walking around. The areas we visited were free and very beautiful. This is a great place for people of all ages.

A lovely garden,well kept,a variety of trees and an indoor herborium. A walk in the pathways is invigorating. A few minutes walk from the Kevin river, an ideal place to relax on a summer day and enjoy the clear air and cool climate.

Great location for a relaxed walk in beautiful surroundings. A visit to the Kibble Palace where Disraeli once spoke is a must and the tropical glass houses are most interesting. Easily accessed by public transport but if using own car parking can be difficult on...More

The gardens are a lovely place to walk and sit (as long as the weather is good) with plenty of sunny and shady places to sit. It is beautifully kept and the greenhouses have plenty of exhibits of different plants etc. to show.
