The gardens in winter are quite a sight

Learn about the gardens

The gardens have various different sections to visit, all very worth seeing - perhaps during one of the guided walks, alternatively download one for yourself.

Many ask what it takes to maintain the gardens, something gardener Chris Brock, knows all about.
