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

Spent the day at Painshill Park and walked the length and and breadth of the grounds visiting all the follies. Interesting history of how the collection of plants came to be at Painshill and wonderful that the estate has been restored and preserved. Loved the walled garden and managed to have it all to myself for about half an hour... More

Went to the Food Festival today, and was slightly disappointed by the small size of the event. However, it was still a good day out, as entry to the beautiful park itself was free. Yet......"Mr Hamilton's" Tea shop was a disaster.I asked for a pot of tea for one, and was given a cardboard cup with a lid.When I said... More

My brother recommend this place to us. It has a food festival on the day which meant it was free to get in and enjoy. It was a great day out. Lots of walking and mystery buildings and quirks making this place quite unique. Lots of great bridges and a great lake. Plenty to keep the kids and family entertained.... More

We had a beautiful sunny day to explore the park with fantastic landscapes and views across lakes. Plenty of wildfowl and even a heron! Interesting follies such as the Gothic Temple and tower, the Hermitage, the Crystal Grotto (only open at weekends), the Sabine statue and views across Surrey landscapes. The bridges crossing the islands in the lake were of... More

The day we visited the park was hosting a demonstration of birds of prey and there were owls and falcons to see up close and in flight. That was special. The park itself is large and beautifully landscaped with architectural features and a lake. Take the walk around the lake and enjoy the spectacular views. There are "ruins", follies, a... More
