Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden, Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden, Manchester, M20 2RQ – Visit Now

There’s plenty of history around here, too. St James’s Church is the oldest building in Didsbury; the Parsonage opposite, with its walled garden and Eagle Gate, is the second oldest. As well as the Alpine plants and ornamental trees, Fletcher Moss is worth a visit for its blankets of autumn crocuses and early spring bulbs, along with plenty of feathered friends, from long-tailed tits to ring-necked parakeets. In fact the RSPB has its origins here – find out more in the visitor centre next to the café.
