unexpectedly large. The gardens are beautiful, everything is beautifully landscaped and mowed. Every piece of the garden has a different feel. most of the vegetation has a description of what kind of tree or flower it is, and everywhere there are plenty of benches where you can sit if you are in a couple. there is also a seating area before the entrance and the possibility of refreshments or an ice cream stand right next to the children's climbing frames and swings. Which unfortunately I didn't take pictures of (children were playing there and you know what it's like when a foreign man starts filming children on the playground ?) otherwise the gardens are really beautiful and it's a shame that they are not completely open to the public and are in Private . Not expensive to visit 110sk per person.

Lovely setting for a house and gardens. We paid for what it said was house and gardens but actually the house is not open to see inside. Quite a few of the footpaths in the garden are shut off so you are only looking at them from the perimeter plus there are keep off the grass signs all over. Disappointing for the price

A beautiful place to visit, get to see a slice of the Swedish crown and how they live. It's a very nice experience, with gift shop and a nice cafe with so tasty treats, food and beverages. It's wheelchair friendly. They also have a small kids play area, so the parents can enjoy a Swedish fika whilst they play. Have a wonderful day

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
