Britain’s Finest likes nothing more than a stroll through a botanic garden, encountering a blaze of colour at every turn and admiring the collection of plant life that someone else has put together at great pains for the delectation of the public. Such is Ness Gardens, a little horticultural treasure trove sitting on the Wirral Peninsula overlooking the Dee estuary. The gardens were founded by Victorian Liverpool cotton merchant Arthur Kilpin Bulley who had a passion for plants and travelled around the globe putting together his collection, the result being one of the most impressive botanical gardens in Britain. And while you amble along in your wellies admiring the hardy perennials, the kids can immerse themselves in the family trails and challenges set by the gardens (with sweetie prizes, naturally. Reward yourself post-walk with a sit-down in The Roses Tea Room, which serves an afternoon tea of naturally flavoured scones, homemade jam and loose leaf tea. Check the website too for a great events diary including lectures and school holiday activities.
