  • The large English section with its huge exotic trees and masses of colour.
  • The delightful Japanese section complete with bonsai house.
  • The beautiful woodland area displaying masses of shade-loving plants.
  • The cool fern gully.

Bring a picnic and enjoy a day soaking up the magnificent colours of Forest Glade’s autumn gardens, as well as an amazing display of fountains and sculptures collected from all around the world.
