Linked by tunnels, the three glass-topped caverns dug into a hillside and the tropical house display a wide variety of native and exotic plants. The Fernery and Display Houses are open 8.30am-5pm.

7. Frog Lodge

Frog Lodge will not be opening this year.
David and Noeline Sampson have made the right decision for their family not to open for the festival. David suffered major injuries after a fall last month, which caused serious damage to both legs. He is still on the long road to recovery. I’m sure you will all agree with us, this is the right move but a very sad one.

We wish him a full recovery. Read More >
