Hi Alex, Billy & Chris!!! Thank you for the wonderful job you all did yesterday with my gardens, I am very happy with the quality of the work and how the place is looking now and I will use you again in the future for additional work, I’ve had 4 seperate neighbours knocking on my door and stopping me on the street since you left telling me the place looks a lot.. 10x better now as it was a jungle before and as other reviewers have stated the guys are very friendly, very fast, very efficient and all of them have a good manner and character about them unlike half of the other people I got quotes from before who are all snake merchants trying to mug off people.. & the work they do gives back to the community and is charitable which makes it even nicer, seeing as I have my own disabilities. Within 20 minutes of opening a request on here they got back to me and half an hour later after that they were here, as they told me they don’t like to let people down and it shows! As far as I’m concerned they should be the only gardening service in the whole area and no one else should be. All very honest, punctual, hard working people, see you again soon. Thanks again guys!!! - Faisal

The Tea Discovery Exhibition was brilliant showing the travel routes globally into local area.There is also a permanent transport of the museum ranging from horse and carts to buses and cars and lots more.
I particularly liked the art project done on a Bedford Truck.
Local archaeological finds give you a sense of how ancestors lived so fabulous for learning.Child friendly and holiday activities put on specially.

Honestly I can't see why there are so many positive reviews, it may just be me but I found this place massively boring, you arrive, spend 10 mins looking at very old vehicles (which was the best bit of the whole visit) but after that it's just walking around from all I can see is a... Field, then a small garden with some nice flowers..... And a chicken. Then a greenhouse with a fern in it.. That's about it. It may be some peoples idea of a good day out but I went with my partner and I don't think we were there for an hour. At least it was free, cause I couldn't justify paying for it.

Booked the welly walk not really knowing what to expect, but it was so lovely. I won't give the game away but for £3 it was worth every penny and more!
The centre is free to get into and there was just so much to do and explore there. The gardens and wooded areas are beautiful, the museum was great and the kids were able to sit in a few of the carriages. . look out for the dressing up boxes dotted about too!
I can't comment much on the cafe there as we took a picnic, but it looked very clean and spacious with lots of outdoor seating too. There's a playground right next to it, perfect for a quick cuppa while the kids burn off more steam!
I'll certainly be going back here. What a lovely and amazing day out!!

WARNING take your own mugs for takeaway hot drinks as the cafe charges 25 pence for each paper cup.

Great place to visit with children. Donations only no entrance fee meaning you can go for short periods and not feel you've lost out. Cafe food was lovely, shame toilets were located within cafe though. I breastfed my baby while waiting for food with no issue. Burger was amazing. Looking forward to our next visit.

I really like this place is the park most visited by me in Luton.You can easily get a bus or car parking is free. There is a small playground for children. There are benches where you can sit and relax after a long walk. It is also worth visiting the Stockwood Discovery Center a very interesting place. There are goals for playing football and for golf enthusiasts there is a designated area for this. I often go walking with my dog.

There is so much to do here for the whole family. Grand parents will love it too. There’s a huge garden with amazing flowers and plants, a playground for little ones and big ones, a decent cafe, a couple of museums and galleries. I’ve been coming here for years and I still keep finding things I hadn’t seen before. It’s a great place to come all year round. When my friends visit with kids it’s always our first stop. Best of all, it’s free. However make sure you leave a few pounds in the collection points to help keep it running.

Review of Stockwood gardening services by Shawn Bhimani
5 10/01/2018 Shawn Bhimani

Lovely place for a long walk while being inspired by art and nature. Public entry and parking are free, the exhibitions are interesting and the grounds are beautiful.

Great for visiting with kids (there is a play area ideal for climbing around) or adults (plenty of benches, viewing areas) alike. There’s restrooms and a pleasant indoor cafe for snacks and drinks (this cafe closed at 4pm on Saturday). Be prepared for a bit of walking, though the terrain is pretty flat and there are pre-defined trails to follow.

The discovery centre is uniquely designed into separate gardens with information areas. This includes sculpture gardens, a children’s play area, gardens with plants from around the world, medicinal plants, greenhouse areas, art gardens and much more. The only issue was that some of the areas were closed on a Saturday afternoon, including the greenhouse and bee exhibit. Despite this, the rest of the grounds were open and well worth the visit.

Overall, this centre is a must see if you have half a day while in Luton. In the same park (Stockwood Park), there is an athletics centre, a horse-back riding area and fields to play sports, football, etc. Parking is free in all areas across the park, which is helpful.

A few tips: bring water; dress warm in the winter as part of the walkways are outside; read the signs - they are informative and they clearly put a lot of work into them; sit on the plentiful amount of benches to enjoy the scenery (there really are benches everywhere); and finally, my favourite part: make sure to explore the outdoor garden with the tree surrounded by an arch of trees and the stones in the middle of the field - the way the artist created the path from each exhibit to the next based only on line of sight helps appreciate the natural beauty of the area even more. Enjoy!

The lads done a fantastic job in my garden, it was a jungle in there and they cleared so much stuff for me, and all in half a days work too! They arrived bang on time and just got on with it. The garden now looks great and can i actually start to do stuff. Will definitely be using them again for other services... and the price, very reasonable.

A really great job replacing my fence and removing an unwanted tree. They came on time, worked smartly, did high quality work and cleared up behind themselves. Their prices are more than keen and the service was friendly. They were also very patient with me as I mucked them around a little bit, changing dates twice once at the last minute and then changing it back again, but they accommodated me without fuss.

Thanks guys. Super job.

This is a wonderful place to come, on your own, with a friend or with a young family. Lots of interest inside and out with permanent and short exhibitions, lovely gardens to stroll in, a natural playground for children to test their climbing and clambering skills plus a cafe and loos, and easy parking. The amazing thing is it's all free! There is a donation box as donations help it to continue to run and a shop with a range of gifts, some inexpensive items for kids to spend their pocket money on. Friendly staff too, who will offer guidance what to see and do.

Me & my husband came with our 5 children and I must say it is a beautiful place with some wonderful history and plenty of exciting things for children to do. I personally loved that the kiddies had to pull out the draws to find more pieces of history.
There is clearly a lot of hard work put into the grounds and it really shows.
I think there should be a small charge to enter to keep it running at such a high standard.
Fabulous place for all ages.

One of the hidden pearls in Luton. Until you go there, it is almost impossible to believe that such places exist. The gardens are beautifully manicured with some amazing trees. The Bee Exhibition is fascinating. The Old Stables provided a wonderful setting to show the many natural history exhibits together with some of the collection of Thomas Wyatt Bagshaw. He amassed a huge record of occupations that are now all past and replaced by modern technology. There is also an amazing collection of carriages. It is just an incredible place and highly recommended.

A little gem, they have a surprisingly big and comprehensive transport museum holding vintage cars to carriages and trucks.

There is also a lovely little topiary garden and a farm museum with farm machinery and displays about agriculture.

Then there is a larger garden for picnics or walking around as well.

The cafe is really good serving small meals, snacks, ice-cream and coffee.

Almost forgot there's a little kids play area with seating outside the cafe.

Oh, and it's free.

This really is a gem.

Located only minutes from the M1 (J10a)

Parking: extensive parking, with plenty of spaces for disabled access.

Discovery centre is very well maintained, featuring an eclectic mix of items from history, including those related to the history of Luton. A real joy to see their selection of carts and outside a resorted contraption engine, which unfortunately doesn't operate.

A vegetable garden, again very well maintained and rather sweet to walk around.

There's a super play area for children. I really can't impress how great this area is.

Best of all, it's free. The entire experience does not cost a penny, though I would suggest a donation or purchase from the gift shop to allow this jewel to continue running.

If on a budget, this would be a super way to spend a day. Educational, fun and great for children. Bring a picnic.

Incidentally, this is yet another project part funded by the European Social Fund.
