Whatever the season the Botanic Gardens are a pleasure.
Particularly the Conservatories - in fine form this time around.

On a good day, you'll get a lot of pleasure here.

We always try to walk around the Botanic Gardens when in Christchurch. Lovely as always. We enjoyed the Rose Garden, although they are not at their best at the moment. Plus dropped in at the Cafe for a well earned coffee

Visit on a clear sunny day, takes about 2 hours to see gardens properly. Museum can also be accessed from gardens. Children's playground and pool are also open. Can also hire small boats near hospital.

Loved seeing all the flowers in a less corralled way. Felt like a natural garden. Also great for discovering sculptures.

I enjoyed walking around this lovely location so much I went back for a second wander. No problem finding a cool, shady spot to sit with a book or watch the ducklings play on the riverbank. The array of trees is impressive, the dahlias and roses stunning, and the Curator’s Cottage herb garden is a treat for anyone needing inspiration for growing edibles.

When you miss European style parks and gardens this place ticks the boxes. Lovely place to wander through.

It is a very nice and big garden, full of green and blossom in summer time. You can spend a few hours inside to enjoy every moment by yourself or with your loved ones. Of course it is good for photo taking too!

We walk every day to the Botanic Gardens and admire the natural beauty of this place. You can see and appreciate all the four seasons during the year. The gardeners nurture this place and every day is another surprise with a fresh bloom.
