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

We have been members here for years and love the space and solitude. When you do come across another walker they always greet making it such a special friendly experience. Some nearby gardens are very busy and Painshill just makes you feel relaxed the minute you walk down the path to the entrance bridge. It's vast - not sure we've... More

Visited today 07.09.14 to take part in a 10k charity walk. Beautiful scenery and despite the hills (can be avoided if not on a scheduled walk) was a great morning. I will definitely return with our dogs.

Lovely place close to motorway so very easy to explore. Beautiful landscaped gardens. Stunning vistas. There is a cafe but a picnic is ideal. The Gothic Tower, the Turkish Tent, the Gothic Temple, etc. all fun to walk to on the historic route. 2.5 miles walk. There is also a shorter route for disabled visitors. 1.5 miles. The highlight is... More

We love visiting Painshill, and it's well worth becoming a member if you visit frequently. There's always something to see no matter the season. Views around the estate are fantastic, and any length of walk will virtually guarantee you a folly to enjoy. The wildlife is also great. Regular events and free talks are good.

I cannot believe that I've never visited this incredible property, despite having lived just a couple of miles away for many years. The grotto is a highlight, but I also enjoyed the elysian fields, alpine walk and the tower. I took guests here on a perfect, sunny day in June and this certainly added to the overall experience. Highly recommended!

If you live close by you would be well worth buying an annual family ticket. I think they are around the £70 mark but it is good value if you want to make multiple trips here - and believe me it's worth making multiple trips if you are able. At £25 for a one day family pass it is a... More

This place is a really nice day out. Lovely walks and landscape. The grotto looked awesome from the outside but was unfortunately closed. The lady in the shop was very helpful in explaining the best walk around. The best part was the view from the tower. Definitely worth the money.

Amazing landscape which is both interesting and romantic. Set close to busy trunk roads it allows you to melt away from the urban sprawl nearby. The grotto is amazing and on a hot day it is definitely the place to be. Access for the less able to some of the key parts is not brilliant but it is definitely worth... More

Had a lovely afternoon out at this beautiful 18th century park, walking distance from Cobham high street. I booked a wheel chair for my aging father (they only have two so might need to book in advance-free of charge) and happily found that I counted as his carer and was not charged entrance. I do think the entrance price is... More
