Enjoy these English sugar mill ruins surrounded by lush botanical gardens, native trees, a butterfly garden and collections of bromeliads, ginger and cacti. A rare human sundial allows visitors to stand next to the current month's tablet and with arms raised, the shadow will point to the time. The gardens feature the ruins of a 19th century sugar factory which contains the most complete sugar grinding machines in the country. Around every corner there are huge dinosaur statues, remnants of an amusement park from 1949-1952, Bongoland. Open daily from dawn to dusk.
