  • Great place to come. I went into the café and I always have the same thing, which is the scones. They are amazing with cream, jam, cherries and strawberries.  more »
  • Nice lake to have a meal by in the summer, and ducks to feed. There's a softplay and petting farm as well (chargeable). Several franchises: Bon Marche, Cotton Traders, The Works, and a butchers/deli, ...  more »

  • A sort of multi area really. Not only the garden centre here. There is a butchers, an aquatic area for purchasing fish for your pond or aquarium plus extras. A ladies shop and a country wear shop. The Works is here too. At the rear, open for summer is the animal enclosures, the large play area and sand pit. There is a café offering hot specials, cakes and beverages. You can feed the ducks at the pond areas purchasing proper feed and also the animals. There is also fishing here with a permit I believe. Whisby also has a new children's soft play barn. A worthwhile visit for families.
  • Run down, dirty and damp. Not sure why The Works wants to be there when a lot of their stock is damp and musty smelling. I think if head office saw the environment it is located in they would leave. The newer sections seemed cleaner and tidier but clearly money is spent on new ideas and not on maintenance of existing ones. It isn't so much a garden center now, but more like a landowner leasing out space to companies and brands to fill, while not spending any of the income on the upkeep of the older parts of the building. It has seen better days and could be a fantastic goldmine to new owners, but sadly it doesn't even come close compared to Pennells down the road who do things professionally and with pride.
  • Lets face it, this place isnt where you'd take Her Majesty. For one, the buildings are mostly disused greenhouses or cowsheds. Secondly, its like finding the centre of a maze as there is minimal signage. Oh and thirdly, the people in Maidenhead Aquatics are so RUDE. Ive also seen several dead fish in their tanks. Admittedly, what they've now done to the animal park is great but I wish they'd invested in the other areas at the same time. It feels very neglected, its all dimly lit and hardly serves the purpose of a typical garden centre! Great place as it's cheap to get into the animal part and it provides little kids with something to do for a couple of hours or more. A large sandpit and various climbing frames, slides and water dams are available to help occupy your kids. Also an indoor play area which is fairly small! But, its worth it! My 5th star will appear once they improve the entrance and the main part.
  • What canbyou say.. it's whisby.! It's great for all the family.. anything from nice long walks to small walks to suit all.. many animals to look at and maybe feed, with an outdoor area that's great for kids of all ages (even dads) lovely little cafe wicked staff, friendly and always ready to help.. and now the have a awesome new indoor play area witch is lovely when it's a big colder outside nice little cafe inside there as well..
  • Lovely walks, nice cafe. Couple of shops, kids are more than welcome and you can buy food for the ducks and fish
