Beautiful collection of tropical plants. Be sure to view the large koi pond. The koi are about twenty years old and probably thirty inches long. They are beautiful and large.

Absolutely gorgeous - free, voluntary donation. Beautiful landscapes, all sorts of plants - different themed rooms, with a helpful leaflet/map to guide you round the various sections. Surprisingly empty, which was quite nice as a tourist but I would say it's definitely worth exploring on...More
