Well worth a trip here, there is a lot to see and the glasshouse is lovely. Beautiful gardens to walk through, a gardeners paradise. The garden centre although expensive has a great choice of plants and a lot of uncommon varieties and species which you wouldn't find in most other garden centres. Also has a fabulous gift shop I could... More

Wonderful garden, a full day out and would offer much more to explore still - so will have to go some other time again. Suitable for family too, children liked wandering the outdoor areas as well as the glass house. Food is expensive as you might expect.

An organised coach-trip to a glorified garden centre (ok I know it`s `more than that`!) with wife and her sister wasn`t filling me with great enthusiasm. However, the RHS site here is in places quite stunning (I`ll let you discover those bits!), and it was actually a day well spent. The superb weather certainly helped, but I imagine it`s worth...

Yes these are arguably the premier gardens in the UK but the cafes have exorbitant prices. The cakes were either stale or just taken out of the freezer and the coffee served in paper cups. Over £11 for two cakes and two coffees is ridiculous and poor quality too. As others have mentioned, the café by the glasshouse is crawling... More

The whole place covers a vast area of gardens all set in lucious grassed areas. The variety of flowers and shrubs on show is massive and form stunning displays. There is a big tropical greenhouse as well. There are places to eat and drink and shaded areas where you can sit for a while and mellow. We were blessed with... More

Even if you don't like gardens, you'll love this setting. Masses of space for picnics. BEAUTIFULLY laid out in different garden areas. Take out membership, you will want to go back.

This is a beautiful set of gardens and glass houses. Even though I know little about flowers and trees it was exhilarating exploring the various gardens and photographing the vivid colours and amazing shapes of the plants The children loved it as did our foreign guests Be careful it could be infectious and you could be returning many times -...

The garden certainly merits five stars, but as an attraction it certainly loses at least one star for its poor cafe facilities. When we went the cafe near the entrance was severely short staffed leading to long queues and tables being left dirty. The cafe near the glasshouses seemed unable to produce even a jacket potato in under 25 minutes... More

When in the area, I just have to visit the RHS at Wisley. Every visit is different as you see different things. The weather was perfect, the gardens were in bloom, the trees magnificent and people were really enjoying themselves. A slow wander along the many paths brings a different garden aspect on each corner. The new baby frogs, the... More

If you want to excite your senses visit Wisley. You don't have to be a gardener to appreciate the beauty of the gardens, they are so thoughtfully laid out and the variety of plants are an inspiration to plant some more of your own. The Lily's in the ponds were a joy and watching the fish great for children and... More
