It was a wet day but this did not detract from the surprise that greeted us. Umbrellas are provided and concrete paths wend their way through the gardens making it very easy to walk around. It is so well set out that you do not...More

There are so many things to see. The garden is interesting and relaxing to walk around. The glass ware in the indoor galleries is worth a visit all on its own - and if that wasn't enough the lunch was superb.

Hi not through garden or gallery. Not sure by the restaurant but generally if you can leave your lovely family member at home the better. It is a great place. Also the lunch is awesome and so is the atmosphere.
