  • A great place for a day out, with or without the family. Nice restaurant serving very good food for a reasonable price. Plenty of nature entertainment for kids. A great place to get inspiration for your own garden. Or just a place to seat and contemplate nature. I highly recommend it.
  • THE place to go to to see a huge range of garden styles and to buy the specific plants you want after. Several eateries dotted throughout the grounds but can get very busy on sunny days at the weekend or during special events. Miles of parking including electric car charging and disabled area. Visited many many times over the years and never been disappointed.
  • Lovely gardens with lots of variety throughout the year, so there's always something to see. If you want to avoid the crowds and ending up in the overflow car parks right down the far end, arrive when the gardens open. That way you get a good 1-2 hours before the gardens fill up with pushchairs and children and families. If it's really busy and there's a special event on like the flower show then traffic heading into the site can back up on the road to the garden and even fill up the slip road off the A3. There is a good system of people directing traffic into the car parks which helps, but it still gets very busy.
  • Great gardens that are beautifully kept. A constant churn in the plants mean that they always have something new to see. It may sound obvious but there is not much to do if it's raining and you aren't ready to get wet. The service in the coffee shops can be very variable (from good to very bad) and the gift shops are very expensive but it's worth a visit.
  • Been here several times over the past few years and they are always adding something to the garden or the grounds. Does get busy on nice days so either go early or late might be a good idea. There can be a queue to buy tickets which is irritating. This is a whole day out here as there are lots of things to see and they are spread out over the grounds.
