Recent developments in the vicinity of the two ponds directly west of the Canteen are looking terrific already even as young plantings. Bold groups of winter shrubs especially, with lots of winter bulbs are terrific. Walking through to the big greenhouse is a bit of a contrast with the plethora of dead grasses foliage and the hornbeam leaves looking all... More

We've just become RHS membership so decided to visit the garden last weekend. The garden is so beautiful even though it rained most of the time. We had lunch in The Glass House cafe. The food is very well made and good value for money. Definitely going back in a few weeks time.

Mum has season ticket so we tend to visit frequently. Always lovely whatever time of year but spring one of my favourites. Orchids in glasshouse & abundance of crocuses. Recommended for all ages

Wisley has year round interest for anyone interested in plants. The winter walk has been a recent highlight: stunning cornus and willow stems alongside ghost bramble, the vast array of stunning hellebores and the scent of Daphne and Witch hazel is just sublime. Take a moment to talk with the gardeners and volunteers who tend to the plants with so... More

Even though garden was coming out of cold winter months there was so much to see. As we walked into the garden, I wondered what we were going to see. Then, we reached the incredible glass house where there was a large assortment of blooming plants and incredible display of butterflies. Then we climbed a terraced stone area that must... More

My wife is a member of the RHS and what a great deal that is! We live about 45mins away by car but even so we come to this wonderful extensive garden quite often to enjoy the vast selection of plants and flowers as they come into their best through the year. There is always something new to see (or... More

A beautiful and interesting place to visit any time of the year, always something different through the seasons. I was first introduced by a friend and visited during the summer when everything is in flower and it is glorious. I have since joined myself as it is better value to become a member for a year as it is only... More

Catering was so bad I don't know where to start. Glasshouse is an army prison and the food matched its name.

Opened right on time. First visit for about twelve months. Everything looks clean and well maintained. Improved since last time and good displays. A fair bit of work in progress but did not detract. Good quality shops and plants, if a trifle expensive. Toilets clean and well maintained. Only had coffee in cafe, good flavour but could have been warmer.... More

Wisley is worth a visit at any time, but is looking especially good with the early daffodils in flowers and a display of hippeastrums (amaryllis) in the glasshouse (soon to be moved to house the early daffodil competition). The camellias are also bursting with flower and many rhododendrons and azaleas in bud/flower. The garden is pushchair friendly and encourages children... More
