Looking a bit in need of love and attention. Cafe did not appear to be open despite the times on the door saying it was. Extensive grounds with lots to explore.

Fab gardens and a delight to explore. Parking is a nightmare though ! but don't let that put you off. Make sure you buy yourself one of the delicious ice creams

It is brilliant place for spending half of the day with family or friends. We really enjoyed nice sunny day and saw many different plants and flowers. Interesting

Definitely one of my favourite places in Manchester. The gardens are really pretty and the woodland walks are quiet & peaceful. Ice cream from the shop is pretty good too. Lovely area & its well worth checking out Parsonage Gardens too.
