To be fair, I have little interest in gardening...my wife does that. But I do like gardens and this one is very good. Quite precise as one might expect from a university enterprise. Even the weeds are labelled...well ok perhaps not but most everything else...More

The variety in and upkeep of these gardens is of a high standard. Whenever we have a chance and the weather is sunny and warm we make it a mission to visit this place. I'd recommend spending at least 2-3 hours to fully appreciate it.

Lived in Bristol for years before I found this place. Quiet little oasis that blends education with a pleasant environment. Have been to the sculpture festival last few years which is superb and great value.

Cost so very little for a brilliant visit. Went with young children, so we only lasted a couple of hours, could have easily spent half a day here. Lovely cafe, friendly staff and idyllic setting. A real oasis and a great find: you won't be...More
