Beautiful and unique, expensive but worthwhile. Was bought alongside a ticket with the castle, and struggled to see the whole lot in one visit.

Excellent day out, with lots of interesting things to see in the garden. Very impressive water features and the walled garden stood out for its roses.

We went on a very cold day but enjoyed our wander around the grounds. The tour of the Poison Garden - whilst not much to see at this time of year was very informative and well worth a visit.

These are stunning gardens with many activities. It helped that we had good weather, but it would still be great anyway. The water features are great and one of the highlights. We visited in April before all the flowers were in bloom, but the place...More
