Family Friendly Facilities: The Gardens are a wonderful environment for families. The exciting play features are suitable for all abilities and include a fabulous tree house, a relaxing flying carpet swing and bamboo tunnels with a wobbly bridge. We also offer seasonal, self-guided activity trails. The Children’s Education Garden encourages discovery of the natural environment in a fun way. Sorry no ball games, children's scooters and bikes, except in the outside picnic areas. See Families and Children's activities.
We endeavour to make the grounds and buildings accessible. The Gardens contain a series of all-ability paths. The Pavilion and Jermyn’s House have accessible toilets with baby changing facilities.
