  • What are Exquisite estate and Gardens and I do believe they offer wedding and other type of events there but I felt very honored to be able to attend an event where were we were able to walk the gardens
  • The history of the place is interesting, sounds like may is the best time to go and see the bloom.
  • This place is beautiful. The garden and the house are breath taking. must visit
  • The first estate of Beverly Hills. Beautiful grounds, historic buildings, great place to bring visitors. Check the website for tour info.
  • Exceptionally poor visitors policy – advance reservations required and their website says ideally two weeks in advance. Shame on them for not being open all the time to walk in visitors, or at least during certain times. As a Team Beverly Hills alum who cares about the community, shame on them for wasting a community asset. If it's not their choice -- if, say, it's a function of a conditional use permit then shame on the people who required advanced RSVPs. A huge waste of a great place.
