Came with over 70 children on a school trip. Lovely scenery, great activities and very friendly staff. We had a wonderful time orienteering and acting out Greek myths. Thank you.

This was our wedding venue (The Conservatory at Pains Hill). We booked it the first time we went to look at it. Perfect place, account manager was awesome too.

I've visited Painshill before - on a 'free day', last year I went to their Food Festival, well I wouldn't call it a Festival, there wasn't much there, and not many stalls. Woking town had a huge amount of stalls for their Food Festival, and proved a much more worth visit. Painshill is I agree very artificial, and overpriced, even... More

A lovely park that has been well restored at obviously great expense. Unfortunately the admission price isn't justified as a it cost four of us almost £30 to wander the grounds for a couple of hours.

In 16 years of living 20 minutes from Painshill, I have never been until 13/12/14. I took my two children (6 & 8) to see Santa, but we spent about 4 hours there wandering round and enjoying lunch in the cafe. The prices for refreshments was very reasonable and the filled potato skins were delicious. Santa and his crystal grotto... More

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
