What a wonderful place to visit. Even the teenagers enjoyed themselves as we explored the secret gardens and meandered through the grottos and trials. Finished off our visit at the cafe with a very generous portion of salted caramel fudge cake.

Hi, I would recommend a minimum of 2 hours, although some people stay for much longer. If you have the time and the weather is nice, you can sit on the benches or the lawns and just chill. Thanks.
