Stunning large cultivated gardens with different 'rooms' for each area - from the Japanese area to the rockery and from the arboretum to the green houses, loads to see and enjoy. Three cafes in the gardens. All good coffee. The one up on the hill has the best views. Free entry but green houses take…

Absolutely stunning botanic gardens up the road (about a twenty minute walk or take the number 8 bus). Free entrance year-round (except the glass houses, which are worth the price in the summer).

Going for a stroll through the Botanical garden is a joy any time of the year (my favourite time is autumn). The glasshouses are a treat and the restaurant in the middle serves great lunch, coffee and cake. Go outside the cafe to catch a great view of the castle.

It's so easy to while away a few hours in these stunning botanical gardens. It's free for entry and there are a maze of different paths and plants to explore. Sit outside the Terrace Cafe not he top of the hill for views over the city.

Museum
“A great option if it's raining during your stay and you want to be indoors, the museum is free although there are occasionally exhibitions you can pay to see. It's bigger than you might think and recommend you give yourself a few hours at least to look around!”
