Yes, we agree, for a venue for an outside/inside event. Although, we do show favortism to the Norfolk Botanical Garden because, my Husband and I were married there 13 years ago. Our company, Chariots for Hire has been providing horse drawn carriages since 1986. Every month of the year has it unique offerings at the garden.

We look forward to doing many events there this year.
