My family took me to see Lantern Asia at Norfolk Botanical Garden. The exhibit was amazing and I'm so glad I got to see this display. The roses were all in bloom so it made for a double pleasure. The gardens are just so pleasant...More

Yesterday we visited the gardens when it was dark. What a pleasure for the eye al those bright colours everywhere. Some of the statures included movement. The darker it got the happier we felt. What a priviledge to be able to be part of this....More

Well-established and different themed gardens to spend hours enjoying. Very accessible throughout, with benches to relax in the shade, a guided tram ride, and both indoor and outdoor displays. A real gem right near the airport! While I was there the Lanterns of Asia attraction...More

I don’t care for gardens as a rule but this was beautiful. The Lantern Asia walk was wonderful. Many plants still blooming and many bench spots to sit and rest. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful.

My friend and I visited for the special attraction of Lanterns of Asia. What an awesome attraction and a beautiful garden to visit. I left very refreshed and in awe of the beautiful flower gardens and walking trails.

I went to this garden for the fantastic display of LanternAsia. The creations were set up along the 1 mile walk of the gardens. Had it not been for the LanternAsia, I am not sure the garden itself is worth the visit. There are better...More

The Norfolk Botanical Gardens are a gem. There's something in bloom seemingly all year round, with the spring azaleas perhaps the highlight (though the roses in summer are a close second). This year they have the Asian Lanterns exhibit that both adds and detracts -...More

Yes, the Marigolds & Honey is the only eatery at the gardens. Occasionally on the weekends there are also food trucks. I've eaten at M&H and do like their food. It is simple, but flavorful. Flat bread, sandwiches, pizza... More
