    Tower Hill is peaceful, beautiful and offers a wide variety of things. Not only are the grounds lovely, but the classes are great. I took a class to redesign my flower beds. I highly recommend dining ...  more »

    If you love flowers and delicious lunches, this is a great place to enjoy both! We go at least twice a year, spring and late summer, to enjoy the seasonal flowers and scenery!  more »

    I had a very unpleasant experience here. It is true that they do have some unique gardens with nice specimens. Their designs were very nice. However, every employee who worked there was VERY rude to me. I felt like they just sniffed the middle-class in me and turned their nose up. I didn't feel welcomed as a plantsman and a horticulturalist. I felt that this place was intended for the rich and snobby. I had heard good things about the gardens from my friends, but I was certainly appalled by the employees working there. Just asking for simple directions and suggestions, I felt like I was a nuisance. Of course, I know everyone has their bad days, but I left here with a very bitter taste in my mouth.

    I love it here! It is stroller accessible and beautiful. Some trails cannot be done with a stroller. I would recommend a stroller with bigger wheels and not an umbrella stroller should you want to visit the tree swing and the gazebo. It was even challenging at times with a big stroller. The cafe is cute and has basic foods for reasonable pricing. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The gardens are maintained well. Bring bug spray and sun block. :)

    I've been here a number of times. It's a great way to spend a nice day outdoors. The gardens are beautiful and so if the indoor orangerie/greenhouse. There's also a restaurant if you want lunch.

    Beautiful grounds, gardens always changing and a nice getaway. Restaurant food is good but service is slow. Try to get a patio table for the view.

    The line just getting in whilst sitting in you car was aweful. The people taking the cash ($15.00 btw) didn't seem to understand the concept of hurry. At all!!! After that over half hour treat our family of five were told the only place to eat closed at 2:30! You absolutely must have more than just restrooms when family bring their children! Sorry, it wasn't worth 15.00 to walk around hungry.
