My wife and I visited the Orchid Foundation and couldn't believe what we were seeing. They only grow the orchids to show at exhibations and don't sell them. They have won numerous gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show. The displays were unbelievable and it has made us envious of what can be grown

We walked here from St Helier on a beautifu February morning, not really knowing what to expect. What we found was a dazzling display of beautiful orchids, arranged in as natural a setting as you can imagine in a giant greenhouse. Loads of varieties and a real burst of colour.

If you like orchids then this is the place to go while in Jersey. Stunning blooms well displayed. Very friendly staff. In the summer the gardens would be lovely for a longer stay and picnic. Small self service cafe area. Allow an hour to really enjoy the blooms.

Absolutely stunning place. Fabulous examples of beautiful orchids. Amazing array. Would only take an hour or less of your day and we'll worth it. On the bus route too

Eric Young Orchid foundation as easy to find, although you could probably spend and hour here it is well worth a visit. If you are interested in Orchids they have every specimen you could name and they are beautiful

Plenty of plants on display and plenty of information to hand. Not many plants in bloom in October. Video screens difficult to read because of light, make your own coffee in plastic cups.

If you like orchids then there are plenty to see here. The displays will always vary as it depends on what is in flower at that time - it was certainly different from the last time we visited 9 years ago, and you can also see into three of the greenhouses from a walkway, with information shown on tablets.

The variety of orchids is really staggering I have never seen as many in one place before, there are even bananas growing in the glass house. Well worth a visit. Entry price reasonable.

Hot houses with glorious Orchid displays at this research and breeding facility. Not huge but worth a visit even if you're not an Orchid buff
