Beautiful park with memorial. Saw The Musketeers play around the park in here, which was a lot of fun, very well done, the finale being the memorial as backdrop which was all lit up, looked fantastic

Nice woodland stroll around the grounds. Did not visit the actual monument of butterfly house. Little cafe seems ok and small gift shop.
