This attraction is absolutely stunning. The gardens are beautiful and there is plenty to see. Some of the gardens are in a very steep valley so would recommend sturdy walking shoes if you plan to visit the Jungle but it’s definitely the best bit!!

Even in half term and being quite busy, the gardens are so big that it never feels crowded. The food in the café is excellent too. Will definitely be visiting here again
