    This is a lovely little place to visit. There's a large indoor garden for all the butterflies and a few birds, which is great at any time of year. They also have an area for bugs, which can sometimes be held by the kids. The small cafe has good food. Definitely worth a visit.

    A very interesting venue for a wedding. Our violin and cello duo, trio and string quartet has performed here for wedding ceremonies and receptions, and have always enjoyed ourselves. A very interesting venue for a wedding.
