I rarely review attractions but as I live close by I thought I would do a quick one about RHS Wisley .It makes a lovely day out and I believe there are around 170 acres to explore including an amazing Glasshouse which was opened by the Queen 8 years ago. Ponds, lakes ,every plant and shrub under the sun and... More

After our last visit over 20 years ago we were looking forward to seeing the developments at Wisley, however, we were less disappointed. While you cannot fail to be impressed by many of the plants and the Greenhouse in particular, many aspects were poor: the model Gardens in particular were a disappointment, we were hoping for some inspiration but they...

I have visited at different times of year and every visit means I see something new. One would never get bored here. As a member of RHS I think it gives good value with entrance for 1 plus guest and the Garden magazine. Plenty of places to get snacks and drinks and prices on a par with NT.

Wisley was a stop off en route for us so I cannot say we covered even half that the gardens had to offer but it was enough to delight the senses and make us sure we will have to revisit when we have more than a couple of hours to spare. We were bowled over by the rhododendrons and azaleas,... More

The RHS Garden Wisley is a national treasure and of all the memberships we have, if asked to take only one, then RHS membership wins hands down. We live nearby(ish) so it's worth it for us, and that seems to be the case for a lot of people as the car parks are full to brimming by late morning. But....... More

Another lovely afternoon at Wisley, the gardens are always beautiful and well kept. The prices in the food-halls however are a different matter. I was served 2 large coffees (small size is a joke) by a miserable young girl. The price well; the large drink is smaller than small at a high street coffee shop and the price greater than... More

We used to live down here, so took the opportunity to visit once again with the family. The grounds and gardens are amazing, and the place can absorb a lot of people without feeling crowded. There are goods options for eating lunch or just a snack. There are lots of different gardens to see, and the kids never get bored.

I returned here with my young daughter for the easter egg hunt. Last time I visited I was days a way from having her and had come to see the Halloween displays (and hope the walk would get things started!) Once again incredible grounds plenty to see and lovely areas to relax in. The egg hunt was great fun (and... More
