  • Great place to go for ideas for the garden, with some miniature gardens giving food for thought. Several places to eat and prices are not too back given the location. The garden shop is good with really helpful staff. The place does get extremely busy!
  • A stunning place, even when the car park is full, out is still possibly to find peace in this amazing place. So much to see and often to do there. As a friend I took several years ago in Feb said: " thought you were mad going to a garden in mid winter, but it is stunning". She took our membership even though she lived a couple of hours away, so she could pop in when around.
  • Beautiful gardens, viewpoints and interesting sculptures. Fun for kids. Quite big when compared to Hyde Hall so plan to pick what you want to see for each visit. Gets super busy at peak times. Overflow parking is at the other end of the garden, but staff on hand for directions.
  • Wisley is a beautiful garden. Great for all ages, lots of open space for children and families and also has an accessible walking route suitable for wheelchairs. There are different areas of interest within the gardens so you could easily spend a long time here or visit different parts of the gardens on different trips.
  • Beautifully kept, spacious, gardens merging into riverside walk. Wood sculptures kept small grandchildren (2 + 5) fascinated for hours so didn't make it to the children's area. Deliciousfood, but a little pricey, choice of cafes coped admirably while busy. Very helpful staff. Also masses of space for picnics. Not over crowded even on an event day yesterday. Perfection plants to purchase, as in the shop a great array of choice goods. Completely informative visit. Large garden centre with ti.ed Q&A area for members. Not the only RHS garden either. Highly recommend.
