Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

Not a central location but definitely worth the trip - a beautiful garden and park, with amazing highlights and re-created natural scenery that takes you from flowery plains up on the mountain trails. Needs about 2 hrs to spare and most certainly worth while!

Walked around and had tea in the park. Loved the material collage of the park situated in the tea room. Great topiary. They had peacocks, parrots and many more. Free entry to the hothouses, and lots of picnic tables and chairs. Well worth visiting.

We were able to park quite cheaply right outside. Would have spent longer but rain was imminent. Good place to bring your picnic.
