    The gardens are expansive, and very well-maintained. Although some of the buildings are closed, there was plenty to see at the beginning of October. There are lots of cafes, and what we ate was pretty good. My only quibble is that it's all a bit expensive, but I guess that's London.

    Was really easy to get there and you are greeted with little markets selling fresh baked goods. All the staff are very lovely, kind and helpful. There is so much to see and it’s wonderful to see everything well maintained, with lots of benches around to sit down if you feel tired, or need some rest.

    The whole place was amazing and beautiful... unfortunately did not really have time to go around due to limited time (the place closed at 3:00 PM when i went)... i was also expecting that there would be art installations in some parts of the sprawling area... toilets were also limited for such a huge area.
