With over 1000 accessions, the glasshouses are home to many exotic and unusual plants that are not found in many places in the U.K. The four glasshouses range from an exotic Tropical House through to a Subtropical, Mediterranean and Arid Houses. There is also a large lawn in front of the glasshouses with a range of beds and shrubberies around it's perimeter, perfect for those family photos. Overall, the character is that of a Victorian public park with a bandstand set in 15 acres (6.1 ha) of landscaped greenery. Read all about the glasshouses here.

Watch these stunning butterflies drinking from exotic, scented, nectar-rich tropical plants such as Lantana, Trachelospermum and Heliotrope. Read more here.
