Had a lovely day at Wisley today. As RHS members we visit quite often in the summer, but this time came mainly to see the butterflies in the glasshouse as we knew this was finishing soon. The gardens were very busy so well done RHS for putting on an attraction to bring people in at this time of the year!... More

I wandered around Wisley's beautiful grounds in the rain today. I followed the winter trail, a great variety of plants, trees, flowers, etc, very diverse colours. A peaceful and magical walk. The glass house is a must-see, beautifully designed and very well kept, offering something for everyone. If you are around in the next couple of weeks do not miss... More

I went to Wisley with my parents and boyfriend as we had heard good things as my mum is a member of RHS. Although it was February plenty of the boarders were springing to life with signs of spring. The butterfly display was nice but very busy inside to see not a lot of butterflies. The sausage sandwiches from the... More

Glorious gardens as always, with the added attraction of butterflies in the glasshouse - and there are LOTS of them! They are surprisingly unbothered by visitors and stop and feed quite happily at one of the 'butterfly picnic tables' dotted around. Splendid lunch afterwards in the Taste of Wisley restaurant. Staff couldn't have been more charming or helpful and the... More

The gardens just get better and better. Even in February, there is so much to see. Stunning colours , Cyclamen, Wych hazel, Iris ,Camelias, Rhododendrons. ...... The arboretum was very peaceful even though it was half term. Lots of birds . Plant centre has a wonderful range of plants, beautifully displayed and nice to find some reasonably priced perennials at... More

On a nice day this is a beautiful place to visit. If you time it right the butterflies are a must. I have been several times. One with a school trip, the children had a great day. The cafe can get very busy. The surroundings are lovely. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. If you can try and... More

It is worth becoming a member if you wish to go several times a year as you can get your money back by going a couple of times only.

We primarily went to Wisley to see the Butterflies. What a lovely way to spend Valentines Day we thought and we were not disappointed. Easy parking (free) and easy to locate the glass house. We'd pre-booked our slot on-line before we went and because we'd arrived early we wandered around the gardens a bit first. Frankly we weren't expecting much... More
