      also many old tomb raider style lanterns lining the paths through the
      gardens; covered in moss and cracking. Stopping for a quick lunch
      turned into a long one after a dog walker decided to start talking to
      us in very good English and told us all about where she has travelled
      and gave us advice on Kyoto etc. Her dog was very well trained too

Although my mum had a little trouble to get there from the car park ...
