The gardens are beautiful and calm, the cafe there was lovely with a great healthy choice. Shame that the glass house was closed for refurbishment but lots of interesting exhibits.

What a wonderful place it is. Just close to the zoo. You can enter it for free and enjoy beautiful garden and flowers. If not the rain, I would stayed there longer. For those who want to enjoy nature, I recommend.

Beautiful. Peaceful. Watch the wonders of nature or relax or read or meditate or have a dialogue with someone close to you. Be the Fauna at the Flora.

It's one of those locations that's often overlooked due to it's proximity to the Zoo. You tend to do one or the other if you're a tourist, never both. But you should! It's really not that large and can be enjoyed in less than an...More
