The site of the gardens one was the home of the Royal National Hospital, which developed a reputation for treating diseases such as TB.

Excellent access and routes for wheelchair, the main visitor centre has a lift.
A peaceful place!
This must be one of the best value, free to visit attractions. Plants and trees from all over the world. Loverly gardens for peacefull walks. With a delightfull view down to the bay, the tea garden is a great place for afternoon tea. The cakes were superb... Cons:
You have to pay for parking (not a high charge) but the gardens are free to enter.
