  • The gardens are quite superb. The RHS labels its plants so that the less informed can learn effortlessly. The atmosphere is peaceful, the layout contoured, the walks varied.

  • Staff very welcoming. Decent size to be able to walk the entire place and feel very satisfied. I did so on crutches so it's certainly a one day garden. Take your own food unless you don't mind paying attraction outlet prices, which is catered for. Time and effort is invested in the maintenance of the grounds, brilliant! Most plants are labeled with Latin names. Great for testing your horticulture credentials.
  • Lovely hardens spread over a large area. Good mix of designs from formal gardens to more naturalistic displays. There are also children's play areas to keep the young ones entertained.
  • Relaxed place that is enjoyable to wonder round wish I had more time to go
  • Great if you're a member, not great if you're paying the admission each time, a nice way to spend an hour or two
  • A feast of nature and colours, an amazing place to bring kids to run around. And they have two Bettys tea rooms!
