A nice little escape from city life, albeit a little far from anywhere. It's very small so is only a quick wander around, but they often house outdoor cinemas etc here. Worth a visit.

Oh dear. I'm sorry you had this experience. Unfortunately we cannot completely secure the garden at night. Our volunteers litter pick as often as possible. Can I ask where you found this litter and what day of the week you were in the garden?

A humble entrance belies the beauty of this amazing garden. It's not only the actual flowers, shrubs and trees but the artistic lay out and planning of it all which is great. You can bring a book or a picnic or just relax with friends.
