The National Botanic Gardens is a place of beauty. Loads of lovely walks around the place with lovely mature specimen trees and lovely planting. Nice spot to go for a wander or just to relax and bring the kids for a picnic.

Easy to get to and free to get in, Friendly and helpful staff. Absolutely beautiful even in February with hail stones;) the layout was great with lots of interesting things to see including the Viking house. Loved the cactus room

Went here as somewhere warm to go. Pleasantly surprised. The signs have some interesting facts. There is a wide range of plants. Having visited Kew a lot most gardens don’t compare. This was as good on a smaller scale

March should be okay...not in full bloom but Spring will be here. Why not check out their we site and see if there is a free guided tour when you are here and / or an exhibition on.
