Great spot for a stroll and especially when the roses are in bloom. Be sure to visit the graves on the left - Google the connection to the British royal family and the story of how the family died.

This is a perfect place to have a walk, in summer or in winter. It offers beautiful gardens but also some architectural gems (houses in the park...envy...), and you can walk around for hours and enjoy it. Definitely worth more than a visit.
