Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens reviews
I don't really care about horticulture, but still had a great experience at the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens. It's very well taken care of and well worth a visit. The little cafe is charming, too! more »
The garden is so beautiful. Lots of space to walk or sit. A very good place to visit and forget about the COVID situation our world currently faces. more »
A magical garden space with great family friendly events and walking paths to reconnect with nature. It would be nice if responsible pet owners could bring their furry friends, but I understand why it isn't allowed.
My good friend got married here. The garden is absolutely gorgeous and yet, not crowded. It is well maintained and simply serene. Aside from the typical garden setup (flowerbeds, ponds, various decorative installations) we saw an assortment of butterflies and even HUMMINGBIRDS (first time in my life!) Definitely worth the trip!!
