There are beautiful orchids and many huge glass made flowers all over the place. Apart from that I didn't find anything interesting. There are some nice activities for children. One of them teach them to recognise different kind of vegetables and fruits.

This Botanical Garden looks good from the outside Inside it lets you down Currently the place is invaded by mums little else is in bloom To make matters worse the displays are overshadowed by horrible glass flowers and ornaments that completely ruin the atmosphere

The conservatory is massive. If a glass house filled with plants and flowers alone does not thrill you, go on a Sat. night when they are open until 11pm. Currently there is an exhibition of giant glass flowers placed within the usual displays. Some seem...More

Went to visit because of the blown glass display. I was not disappointed. Exhibit was wonderful, simple & not over the top. The glass artist does an excellent job displaying his work among all the plants. As it was October there was not a lot...More
