I can't believe that I've never visited this gem of a garden restoration before. It puts Stowe in the shade. Originally created by Charles Hamilton between 1738 and 1773, when he had to sell the estate to pay his debts. By 1948 it had fallen into disuse, but with the foundation of a trust in 1981 it has gradually been... More

Frequent here often, during school holidays as they always have something or other going on for kids, bug watch etc & we often come here to see Father Christmas in December ( booking in advance needed for this) It's a great place for roaming/walking with lots of little places that you will want to see- my kids in particular are...

I visited with my friend. Had been before when I was younger so it was great to go back. It is a great set of landscape, woodland and lakes with beautiful follies, a grotto and an outdoor theatre. There is a cafe at the entrance that serve hot and cold food. It's a lovely place to walk around an great... More

We went to the 'Pooch Day' with friends and dogs. Good and slightly eccentric English event. What astonished is this unbelievable hidden gem. Have lived and worked in the area for over 20 years and never been. This is like a local cross between Stourhead and Blenheim. A gigantic parkland of great interest an beauty. Helpful volunteers add the knowledge.... More

I went as part of a Pram Walk with the Childrens Centre so I did not have to pay to get in. Was absolutely stunned by the beauty...OK so it wasn't as easy to enjoy with 2 small kids there and it wasnt really safe enough to let them run free (with open water and deep grass section etc) but... More

The directions to the park on the website take you to a small single lane road where I was told by an employee that it was a private entrance for a wedding and was given mind boggling directions to the public entrance (not described on the website or the satnav) of which I could not find! For such an apparently... More

Painshill Park is a hidden green gem in the hustle and bustle within the M25. It offers 163 acres of enchanting landscape as a work of Art: a national collection of trees, lakes, magical follies, carefully selected shrubs & plantings, delightful bridges, a two acre vineyard, a captivating trail where the visitor reaches one charming folly only to catch a...

This park is lovely and if you live in the area and want to go and relax and have membership then probably fabulous. The fee at £10 is steep compared to the parks in London that are free such as Regent Park and Hampstead Heath. Some of the highlighted curiosities was closed (and it is peak summer) and the fee...

A vast, hilly and well-kept green area scattered with eccentric ruins which have little historic or architectural value but make up an intriguing and charming experience. Great for small children because there is lots of space. There is wildlife on the large lake where the anglers claim extravagant catches. The trees and shrubs are superb and wonderfully laid out. Plenty... More

Lovely place with marvellous scenery, great little café, picnic area, walled kitchen garden, a ruined abbey house, lakes and a superb grotto (make sure you go when this is open as it's unique). Great day out for young and old alike. Clean, decent toilets and an on-site shop. Free parking and easy access to go back to your car and... More
