Really enjoyed our visit. The sun was shining and everything seemed to be in bloom. Was surprised that the glass house was not unbearably hot. Exceptionally well kept, everything was labelled and just really impressed. I found it very relaxing. I am not a gardener, but I found it really interesting. Probably not aimed at young children, although there is... More

I had never visited Wisley before as I thought it was further than it actually was. There is ample car parking and a number of different places to eat, but it is the gardens and the good size of the area that makes it. It is a little hilly in places and over the hill you can hear the traffic... More

First visit here and found it very relaxing and quiet. Very popular with quite a lot of visitors. Good large car park. Restaurant etc. Water features with ponds and water fall etc. Allow all day for a visit, and don't forget comfortable shoes, it's quite large. I noticed disabled scooters there, but don't know how many they have. Well worth... More

Went on a sunny May day. The home of UK gardening so you would expect it to be good. I took my kids and my brother brought his. Plenty to see and do with woods, californian terrage, prairies, English formal gardens etc. I had a picnic on the gardens though ,my brother ate in the fantastic restaurant there and I... More

Everything was really nice on this visit. The gardens are beautiful and spotlessly clean. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Even on a warm Saturday morning the grounds can accommodate a large number of visitors with out it becoming too busy to enjoy. Great facilities for the disabled. One very small observation is the distance to the toilets which was... More

A stunning place to visit, ideal for all ages as long as youngsters are kept under control. A lot of walking which can get tiring in the heat, as it was yesterday, a sunny Saturday afternoon, so take regular breaks. Easy to reach (take the M25 as it is!), good parking. The conservatory café has a wide choice of food,... More

I've just become a member of the RHS so that we can visit Wisley any time. We often use the garden centre, which is the best by far, and the gardens were like a forbidden treat until I joined! Three Sunday's running, we've seen something different every time. The roses are amazing, alliums are stunning, lovely alpine garden, and the... More

We were taken there for the first time and I could see what a wonderful space it was for children to run and roll around in. The gardens are lovely. I was going to post my photo of the Caterpillar in the Alice in Wonderland Garden but others beat me to it. I stopped and asked questions of of the... More

I have been to Wisley many times - I recently took a French friend there. She was completely amazed at the scale and beauty of the gardens. I would recommend anyone to visit even if they are not a keen gardener. There are lots of places to sit and admire the garden or just have some peace and quiet. It... More

My aunt and uncle are relatively mobile but have to take regular breaks and one has a mobility issue, no going to a gardens one would think what, why go, well GO the staff were excellent and they even had transport on around the site. But remember to check the timings of the last one as finishes reasonably early evening.... More
