I’ve posted a few pictures from this garden before. When my friend came over from Belgium two weeks ago (time is flying) we decided to visit this place. The sky was very moody at first but then it cleared out :-)

It is located 15 minutes walk from the train station and is easily reachable on foot. You can have food over there, they sell sandwiches, or alternatively bring your own picnic and lay down on the grass. You can also walk from this garden, through the pinewoods and arrives at another garden, RHS Garden Harlow Carr. It’s quite a long but easy walk :-)

At this garden centre, you can find a wonderful shop where you can buy flowers but also a lot of decoration items and little Bettie’s team room when you can have a delicious afternoon tea. At the opposite of Valley Garden, RHS Garden has an entrance fee and I didn’t visit it this time as it was already end of the day so I can’t tell you if it’s worth it or not ! But it looks really big !

      • Philly Halloween weekend for 3 nights. Halloween is a big drinking holiday here. Funny thing is we don’t drink but we love all the haunted houses. So we’re going back to Eastern State for their haunted house in an abandoned jail. Caribbean in either March or April, Montreal in summer and Vancouver Island in Sept/Oct. What we’re thinking. Not sure what island in the Caribbean yet. Maybe Curacao again not sure. Prices look really good right now. Thinks its zika that’s what is making the Caribbean more affordable. What are your holiday plans? We were debating Thailand. I have a cousin that lives there half the year but a lot of reefs are closing due to bleaching. If it improves we may toss all our plans and head to Thailand. We’ve never been to Asia and we really would like to go there. Dreading the flight after 5 hours I go crazy.

  1. The Valley Gardens are lovely Gin! Have walked round them many times and done the walk through the woods to Harlow Carr too. Had many afternoon teas there at Betty’s :) My dad is a member of the RHS so I always go round the gardens as his guest. They are well worth visiting in my view – not too formal and a lovely place to stroll around. The lake has been extensively renovated in recent years :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos :)
