Superb parking, great cafe & incredible walks I would describe the Painshill Park as a walk through a Wooded a Garden with a surprise around every corner If you're a bird lover, then are are plenty of birds to see around the trees, gardens and the superb pond. The thing to look for is the Grotto. DO NOT VISIT THE... More

It's nice to know places so peaceful and quiet exist inside the M25. Went for an afternoon, and enjoyed strolling around the park, taking in the plants and wildlife. Have to take off one star as the website and map don't make it clear which follies are still present, and which (such as the temple of bacchaus) are just outlines... More

So much to see and do, whether you are 5, 15, 35 or 50! Plenty of space to walk, run, cycle or just sit and enjoy the views. Lots to explore, especially the bastion and grotto which is incredibly well preserved and an amazing underground find! There are spectacular views from every angle and I will go back in a... More

Visited on the hottest day of the year so far, and had a lovely stroll through the almost deserted grounds. In fact the largest group of people there seemed to be a film crew situated by the Grotto. Perhaps it was just quiet because it was midweek. Many of the trees have yet to produce any foliage, so it was... More

We have visited in the Autumn and Spring and found Painshill Park a delight on both occasions. The colours of the foliage in Autumn is breathtaking and in the Spring when all is green it is spectacular too. I have photographed the ruins and trees reflected in the lake whenever I visit as there is always something new to see.... More

Had a fantastic afternoon, started off with a spot of lunch in the cafe, the dos the 2.5 miles historic walk around the park. We will be back in the summer.

. I love coming to Painshill Park at any time of year. In the different seasons there are different colours, fewer or more leaves on the trees, different wildfowl on the lake. It's quite tiring for little feet or elderly ones if you do the whole circuit, but if you can manage it, do try. At every point there are... More

We had the opportunity to take a stroll through Painshill Park on a beautifully sunny March day, around lunchtime. Having passed through the pay booth and into the grounds we were met by carpets of snowdrops and the first few daffodils were coming into bloom. The ducks and geese on the lake were enjoying the first signs of Spring, and... More

Crossing the Mole bridge you arrive at the ticket office, shop and cafe. there is a choice of walks around the lake or up and over the hill, looking down on the vineyard and across the countryside. The gardens were restored recently from the original by Capability Brown back in the 18c.To travel the whole park would involve nearly 3... More
