There is no doubt the place is nice and beautifully maintained. If you do not have kids and buying snacks, honey and the usual stuff that these places sell is not your thing, give this place a miss.More

I personally would only bother if you are literally going past it. Its free entry but you pay for everything. If you are going past you could stop off for a drink (coffee, milk shake, or alcoholic ginger beer).

Sorry, I do not know if public transport go there. The best is probably to ask the Ginger factory themselves.
