Whatever it may be, the Garden Tomb’s worth a visit. We went here on a warm afternoon, and even though the place was crowded, it wasn’t the jostling, noisy mass you’d have expected it to be. The tomb lies amidst a very well-maintained garden, full of cyclamens and rosemary, and with plenty of benches where you can sit. Volunteers take visitors around on a guided tour of the entire area, explaining its history. You can buy souvenirs at the local shop, or just take the sprig of fragrant rosemary which is gifted to every visitor.
Entry to the Garden Tomb is free.
