Vandeleur Walled Garden
Vandeleur Walled Garden information
This stunning 'lost' garden was the private domain of the wealthy Vandeleur family – merchants and landowners who engaged in harsh evictions and forced emigration of local people in the 19th century. The gardens lie within a large walled forest just east of the centre and feature a colourful array of plants including magnolias, acacias, acers, oaks, monkey puzzle trees, bamboo, ferns, banana trees, hydrangeas and a beech maze.
Woodland trails wind around the area, and there's a cafe.
