First time visit as I live in Norwich. Lovely gardens with so many bridges and benches dotted around. I wanted to see a kingfisher but no such luck today. Very pretty but I don’t think you could be here longer than 2 hours, and this...More

A very pleasant environment to spend a couple of hours on a hot August morning. Given the lack of rainfall and the late-ish season the gardens were well kept and my dog did enjoy nosing around the nature trail. I agree with another reviewer about...More
