The public gardens are stunning ! This is a perfect place to relax and unwind with a good book or to share a conversation with some friends. It is budget friendly as there is no cost to get in and perfect for parents to bring their children. Remember to bring some bread for feeding the ducks !

Perfect walk, only minutes from the house. Here you will see a classic Victorian formal garden and can wander along tranquil footpaths. Closes at dusk so don't miss!
