This was a strange experience. The grounds and general landscape of Painshill Park are attractive and imaginatively laid out but the buildings on the site are a pretentious mixture of the bizarre. It has the feel of a 19th century Disneyland.

Painshill Park is a restored 18th Century garden/country estate. The whole garden is wonderful with lovely views and a great array of follies, most of which have been painstakingly restored. Parking is free and it is easily accessible from the A3. The Grotto is amazing, the other restored follies are wonderful, we hope they restore the rest of them so... More

My husband and I visited in December 2014 to meet Santa in his grotto with our two children, my cousin with her husband and son. The park is lovely, fantastic walks. Santa's cave grotto was amazing, very magical. Very well decorated. I was personally in awe looking around at the cave and all the lights. Santa was lovely and patient... More

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
