Murder, Mystery and Flowers

Great night was had by all at the murder mystery evening at Hilton Double Tree @ Cadbury House (just opposite the amazing Cadbury Garden Centre in Somerset)

The Gangsta n Mol themed murder mystery was played out, to a packed dining area, between courses by a really professional amdram group – Murder by Design -  with a well thought out plot - our table got it wrong! The policeman, who was also the writer/director was amazing.

The hotel also had a luxurious health spa that we could use gratis (even swam before breckie :)

Returned via Bristol Botanic Gardens, stopping off at a wonderful rustic farm for tea n cake.

The Botanic Garden is situated in Stoke Bishop, a few hundred meters from the edge of Durdham Down and a short walk from Bristol Zoo. In 1882 Bristol University College awarded their Lecturer of Botany, Adolf Leipner, a grant of £15 for the purpose of laying out a botanic garden. Leipner raised a further £89 and the garden was built on waste ground adjacent to the newly opened buildings of University College The resource provides the teaching of plant sciences within the University of Bristol and a resource for local schools.

The University of Bristol Botanic Garden was the first new University botanic garden to be created in the United Kingdom for nearly forty years and contains many exotic species set in inspirational displays against the backdrop of a striking Victorian house.
