  • We took our two grandsons, aged 12 and 3, the older helped the younger to complete the trail questions, and they both received a prize. We last visited Bennetts some 20 years ago and were pleased to s...  more »
  • Last time we visited Bennetts, it was at the end of July when the place was a veritable sea of water lillies. This time it was mid-June, so we were a little early, but there were still many, many inte...  more »
  • This hidden treasure that has the national collection of water lillies is a must to visit if you love these beautiful plants. A Monet garden in the UK. A little overpriced at £9.25 but vouchers around...  more »

  • Love this place! Beautiful lakes with waterlilies in beautiful peaceful environment. There are easy grass paths round the site and plenty of good places to sit. There's a picnic area if you choose to take your own food. Very nice cafe overlooking one of the many lakes, serving breakfasts, snack lunches, cream teas, cakes, drinks etc. Lovely helpful staff and clean pleasant toilet facilities. A must if you're in the area but not very suitable for young children!
  • Cafe OK for light meals etc open 10:30 -14:30 gardens closed as from today 29/09 for the rest of the year worth a visit
  • Stunning gardens. Very lovely. A tad overpriced if im really honest. But well worth making the trip.
  • Ummm lovely BUT....? 10 of us thought ditto of the charge being quiet high (£8.95) for a 30min walk round when 90% of lillies have passed their bloom...we weren't aware of this prior. Just a thought yo owners....maybe reduce charge when not in bloom. Plus structors were very poor worn out & some bridges closed off due to this. Definatley not like the photos shown. Cafe was really lovely & staff were excellent but again prices were very high. We all sadly wont be revisiting. Disappointing
  • Fascinating if u like lillies and Monet. Staff are friendly. Food is and servie is lovely .

Where to stay in Weymouth

Weymouth is a popular seaside resort, so book accommodations along the Esplanade, the coastal walkway, early because rooms at the hotels fill up fast. Consider a room or apartment inland for deals and peaceful nights.
