We visited in the Autumn towards the end of the season. I thought this showed a wonderful view of the garden as it transitioned from the summer show. A wonderful way to spend a day (and a nice cafe).

Hi there. There is disabled access from the side lane but once you enter the building I am afraid that the facilities are in my opinion, not up to a satisfactory standard. There is no designated disabled parking. The garden... More
