Very pleasant park on the edge of the city. A few interesting things like Captains Cook's cottage but for the most part it is a very well maintained green space that is very good to walk through and sit in.

Beautiful to stroll through at any time of year. Well maintained, wide paths suitable for wheelchairs. Something for everyone. Highly recommended.

Lovely and scenic. Nice to walk around and take in the history. Cafe was very good considering how small it was.

It’s a lovely walk through the Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook’s cottage, the miniature Tudor village and conservatory are well worth a visit.

What a stunningly beautiful place to wander. I felt like I was in another country almost - the avenues of trees
