Visited eyebright with my daughter and a friend. Heard so much about this place and was looking forward to it. We found it to be an overpriced gift shop with nothing special to offer. We spent about 20 minutes there and are not even acknowledged...More

This is a lovely gift shop but not really a tourist attraction. They have some lovely gardens and a pond but the store is just a large gift store. It is very lovely and absolutely full of gorgeous stuff but not really an attraction.

I always thought Tripadvisor was about tourist attractions, but this is actually just a gift shop like thousands of others that are not listed on Tripadvisor. OK, they have a guinea pig cage in the garden ($2 fee to walk closer than 3m) and a...More

A beautiful little place with interesting shop. Ask at counter for some carrots to feed the guinea pigs. Guinea pig village has a gold coin donation box and is great to see. There is also a sectioned off part for the 'honeymooners' that usually have...More

I stopped in there this morning, it has been over 20 years since I last visited. It is just down the road from The Grape Escape and you can get to it if you drive down Queen Street in Richmond and carry on to lower...More

Great place to browse for gifts as the selection is huge. Prenzel to soaps and perfumes, to nick nacks of every shape and style. There is also a guinea pig section which we did not visit, not having any kids with us. Well worth a...More

One of my favourite Nelson places to go. I'm not into malls and shopping there. Been there done that. But this store is an experience in shopping. Tasting for diffferent products on sample and a complete visual feast of different colours, styles and a florist's...More

This is a lovely place to have a walk around. Lots of in vogue decorating bits and pieces as well as flowers and jewellery. At Christmas they have a great shop at up that is a must for children to visit.
