Free & utterly amazing – what’s not to love about the Hamilton Gardens!
You can easily spend a day walking around the Hamilton Gardens and not run out of things to do or see.
The perfect place to take a picnic lunch and eat in any of the many themed gardens there is also a cafe on site (I find it great for ice cream bribery at the end of a long day for tired feet to get them through the last of the gardens).
Tucked away in the corner is also a park for the children but they will be so busy imagining and running through the inspirational gardens they probably won’t care if you give it a miss.
Photographers, you will be wishing you bought all your lenses here! The 50mm for the beautiful shots you will be able to get of the kids, a wide lens to capture the majesty of it all and your macro lens to capture they flowers. I packed light so compromised with my 70 – 200mm 2.8 which did a fantastic job of capturing our day. Make sure you pack your polariser too.
My favourite gardens – its a hard call but I think it would have to be the Italian and Japanese Gardens.
