An amazing experience - we spent just over 4 hours here, enjoying lunch in the restaurant as well as spending a lot of time reading all of the inspiring words of wisdom in front garden.

A beautiful display of art in amongst palms, interesting boards, paths and avairies. The restaurant was pumping and the food looked top notch.

We loved our time at the Sculptureum...we only had time for 1/3 but what we did see was AWEsome. The sculptures were diverse and interesting. And the landscaping and planting was beautifully textural. The staff were amazing hosts (providing umbrellas and welcoming the children). It's...More
