Late November isn't a colourful time of year, but there was much to enjoy in this relatively small garden. The only drawback is that there is very little additional visitor information apart from the basic plant identification labels.

Even if you don't like going to the gardening like myself you should give it a try. it's so clean, beautiful types of flowers, trees. They have a must see exotics area, if you can't stand humidity you might need to be cautious. It is great for dates, family and or solo

Even though it is not the best time of years to explore gardens, we thought we'd take the short walk on a Sunday morning to see this place, not least because we are always interested to see what plants of interest are looking good at this time of year so that we can get ideas for our own London garden....

Splendid gardens, splendid places where fruit trees and other plants are growing. Also beautifull green houses with exotic plants and flowers. To be recommended.

This garden is basically my garden, since I'm lucky enough to live right next to it! It's big and beautiful and there is so much peace :). Lots of corners to discover. Amazing piece of green in the city!

Loved the place! The colours and diversity of plants was really nice. Tranquil and relaxing. Would love to visit at other times of the year.

Quite large botanical garden with free entrance. Several sections make it an interesting set-up. Many benches to sit and relax and the whole area was very quiet when we visited, maybe because it waa the end of the day and in October

As a local, I love to visit this garden regularly. From the old market in the center of the city it is only a five to ten minute walk. Depending on the season, the crocus flowers (about jan-feb), the purple rain (about may-june) and the irises are all spectacular. Entrance is free and there is a free public restroom.
