These gardens are so interesting! There are so many different bits to them and the plants and flowers are just beautiful. Wonderful views and a good cafeteria (if pricey) for lunch. We could easily have spent an entire day here.

Go with plenty of time so that you can see it all. it is extremely well taken care of and preserved. the food and drink offering could be better: more restaurants with more variety and more reasonable prices.
