Very disappointing experience at Santa's grotto, but mainly due to poor staff. We arrived half an hour early as instructed, but the 20 minute walk to the grotto means that the experience is actually pretty rushed. The 'elf' that met us in the wishing tent gave us a ticket and a number, but didn't explain what they were, in fact... More

We went last year and loved it but came away feeling a little disappointed this year. The walk through the woods to Santa's Grotto was shorter with less to look at and we only 'met' one character - last year there were three. This year the adults had to pay as well unlike last year. We also spent a vey... More

We booked to see Santa following some fab reviews on Facebook and we were really disappointed. Firstly we had to pay normal entrance fee per adult - there isn't that much to see there and doesn't warrant the entrance fee given we were going at 4pm when it was dark within the hour. Santa could have been more magical than... More

As lovely as the grounds are you should wait for a 'free entry' day as they often have them. Unless it's the only place you can go it's really not worth the entry price otherwise. The groto is a must see if you're there though and there are some stunning pictures to be taken of the bridge and the lake.... More

Who would have known it - tucked in between the M25 and the A3, A tranquil oasis in this beautiful corner of Surrey. With extensive grounds and well-planned walks its a great spot to recharge the batteries - helped by the gorgeous little café plus a shop for some quirky present purchasing :). Then finally there is the little gem... More

Went with friends for a lovely afternoon walk and stopped off for a coffee in the cafe. Beautiful gardens even in November. Worth a visit.

Took advantage of the free entrance available on Wednesdays throughout the month of November, which was a welcome bonus (normal admission price at time of writing is £7.70 for adults, and £6.60 for concessions). This freebie allows a quick glimpse of what to look forward to in the summer, which is when we normally visit. However the timing of our... More

Painshill park has over 150 acres of good paths that hug the lake and take you past a series of follies including a grotto, Turks tent and the 5 arches bridge. There was lots for us to see and the views from the top of the Gothic Tower stretched to Central London - well worth the reported 99 steps to... More

Painshill Park is a lovely day out for all ages. It is a naturally gorgeous place for a walk but is also full of fascinating folleys placed there by its original owner. These include a crystal grotto, a Turkish tent high up on a hill overlooking an enormous lake and even a ruined abbey that is so pretty it looks... More
