The garden gives an all-round sensual experience to visitors. It has contrasting colours and forms, and the calming sounds of running water.
There are also the fragrances from a range of herbs and roses. And the calming scent of the Camomile Lawn which releases its scent when walked upon.
There are also a range of contrasting and complementary textures. These include the warmth of the sun from the south facing wall, the cool stone surfaces, warm timbers, and the foliage of hedges and trellises.
All in all, the garden provides a tranquil setting in which to relax and reflect. You can transport yourself back in time to when the world was a much quieter and simpler place.
And all this is just a short distance from the bustle of the city centre.
