Beautiful gardens, free entry, peaceful and tranquil. On a sunny day take a picnic. Lots of benches, bird song fills the air.
Well worth a visit time allowing.

We were so lucky to visit on a beautiful sunny late spring day, unfortunately we had missed the daffodils but the gardens are stunning......a little bit of England abroad!

We passed a very pleasant morning wandering through these delightful gardens enjoying nature at its best and listening to the river and the birds. A lovely green lung in the city. Well worth a wander.

It’s a big garden. There is no entry fees. You can buy a ticket for caterpillar ride which is around 55 mins of ride. Driver gives you information about plants and trees. We bought a combo pass which included tram, botanic garden caterpillar ride, Gondola and punting.
