Woodthorpe Grange Tropical House, near Nottingham

The kind of greenhouse where cacti and palm trees lean against each other for some extra support, the very mature Monstera is fruiting gloriously and of course there's a dinosaur for the kids to discover. Although we don't actually feature the dinosaur in any of our pictures there is a monkey to be found if you care to do so... 

Woodthorpe Grange Tropical House is humble (read that as 'achievable') and just lovely because of it and as always with us: foliage proves to be king.
