Being a member of the rhs thought we would enjoy the butterfly event? What a disappointment!! Hardly any butterflies. Having seen many of these butterflies in their natural habitat even more disappointing. Full of mothers with under 5's looking for a day out and obnoxious people with back packs and long lens telephoto lens in your face blocking views. It... More

We went for the butterfly's in the glasshouse and they are amazing, we went on a weekday so there was plenty of time to look and enjoy the butterfly's , but if you go on a weekend it is very busy and not that comfortable due to the number of people. The gardens as ever are great with a lot... More

Wisley even in winter is an astonishing showcase of Britain's love affair with gardening! Here were some of our favourite items: the butterflies and orchids in the hot house, the alpine displays (phenomenal), the witch hazels and the dogwoods. Beautiful displays even when everything is sleeping.

What a beautiful place and its the winter! The walks and gardens are beautiful and so much for the kids to do and facilities are fantastic and clean. Will definitely be returning in the Spring.

On every level, the Lion, Witch & Wardrobe Trail is truly awful. For start, it's not a trail. Just a few signposts stuck in the ground pointing you from one disaster to another. We only went to one of the 'shows' (and I use this phrase in the loosest sense) which I think was billed as something to do with... More

Whatever the season Wisley is worth a visit - of course in spring /summer it is stunning, but a recent mid-week December visit still gave beautiful views of winter borders, delicate scents to enjoy, and the flowering plants in the glass house were stunning. It was lovely to see so many young children enjoying a day in the winter sunshine.

We have been to RHS Wisley on a number of occasions at different times of the year with our two young daughters and it is always a pleasure to visit as they have various activities going on during the year so it is always best to check on their website to see when any special events are taking place as...

Take a leisurely stroll through the landscaped gardens and feast your eyes on the surroundings or a rather pricey refreshment at one of the eateries. That said it's a great day out and an experience one shouldn't put a tab on. If you dislike parallel parking, enjoy wide open spaces and horticulture taken to new horizons, raise your cup of...

We went on a late Sunday afternoon in December. The gardens are not at their beautiful best, but there is still plenty to see and do. We particularly enjoyed the area next to the lake and climbing to the various viewing points. Café/restaurants are decent, and for the type of venue far from expensive. We will return in the Spring... More

This wasn't really a trail as such, it was more of a walk to one location, queue for 10-20 mins then watch an excellent short performance for 10 minutes. Therefore, we were pleased that we arrived early because by the time we reached the last of the 3 performances, we had to wait for two full shows before we reached... More
