Make an afternoon of this visit. Gardens are huge, walk along gravel paths under trees, alongside beautiful shrubs etc. The formal gardens are lovely. Not many seats on the walks which is a problem if elderly.

Gardens are good and a nice walk but needs more info on the whole walk route.Not much to do for little ones only walk.Could do with a little more fun treks for kids or maybe a find and fact sheets for them.

The scale and concept of this garden is as amazing as I was expecting. The idea of walking through woodlands of Magnolias in flower, or along a 150 metre long magnolia avenue, is fascinating - and does not disappoint when you do it! Every piece...More
