  • OMG! This a must visit for ANYONE. Even the least green-fingered out there will appreciate the beauty of the RHS gardens, what a magnificent and diverse range of garden themes they have established. I recommend visiting the rose garden, as I've never seen or smelled anything like it. The Glasshouse is amazing too, with a multitude of exotic and hot climate plants. Makes you feel like your somewhere else entirely. Also visit the on-site garden centre for a great selection of plants for your own garden, the selection is one of the best around comparing to other garden centres. Join the RHS as a member to gain access any time and the savings would be considerable if used more than 5 times annually.
  • What a dream of a place! If you love plants and flowers and have the time to take a one of the free guided tours of the grounds, do go for it! There is an excellent gift and plant shop on site, arrive in good time, as the huge car park does fill quite quickly. Easy access to Wisely though via the A3 London direction
  • Stunning site. We need to visit again to see all the bits we missed, so many gardens and stuff to see. The glass house was full of butterflies when we went, very impressive and hot.
  • Like a lot of beauty spots in Britain, they are all becoming far too expensive for more than one visit. My friend and I could just about afford it as single adults - bearing in mind that after the high Entry Fee you have to fork out for expensive food and drink! However, it was worth the one trip. Beautifully landscaped, extensive grounds give plenty of space for everyone to enjoy, no matter how busy it gets. Takes a few hours of walking to see it all. Lovely tropical greenhouses give a real sense of 'paradise' and there are tranquil streams and rivers and many varieties of plants to enjoy. Yes, we both loved our visit but it broke the bank!
  • Absolutely amazing gardens - ignore the cretins and morons who moan cos they don't take responsibility for feeding their own children, or the people shocked that some of the shop stuff is made in China or didn't get the parking spot they wanted- these are simply excrutiatingly beautiful gardens and worth the time to visit whenever you can.
