A lovely little garden perched on the hillside just outside the walls. You'll need to like gardens but some curious plants and quiet places to sit and enjoy the view

This small and not particularly pretty garden is worth a short detour, mainly for the views. There was little to excite botanically.

It's quite a climb. Check the opening hours because outside the season the garden is closed in the middle of the day, and you have to walk longer to get to the main entrance. It's free of charge, really tiny, but the views are great....More

It's a pity that the garden isn't larger, as it offers an interesting selection of plants & fantastic views. Try to get it in season, and an hour should be enough allocated time.

10 mins walk from the Natural Science museum,a little uphill. Small so easy to get around . Seated areas to relax. Toilets on site. No glasshouses that I could see.
