Beautiful gardens located in the heart of Georgetown. I believe about five acres of English Gardens with lots of private spots for a small group or couples to have a peaceful picnic or just relax.

We were walking around this Georgetown and came upon this place. We went in and joined a tour. The place is small enough for a quick and interesting visit.
