It’s free, it’s warm, it’s beautiful, so what’s not to like? We wandered in off the street to fill a couple of hours before our train home. It was an unexpected gem and we popped through to the linked Millennium Gallery too, before having a...More

Fabulous bit of architecture. A great idea. And could have been stunning. However, as with Fargate and other areas, it lets the opportunity of impressing visitors go to waste. The planting is getting tired, the place is scattered with cheap, nasty stalks and cafe overspill...More

Lovely quiet place to escape the bustle of the City Centre for a short time. Also shelter from any bad weather! Light and airy. Not overly big. The only thing that lets it down is some ridiculous large bright plastic ‘snakes’ in the plants! Why?...More

This lovely indoor garden offers a nice break from the cold and rainy outside. It is even lovely to go into on a nice sunny and warm day. The plants inside are beautiful to look at and if you want to know more about them...More

Beggars asking for money, children running riot and destroying plants, parents are skanks, full of lowlife wasters.
