The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring. « less

Middleton Place is beautiful. The grounds and gardens are well kept and there are many things to be discovered. We enjoyed the alligators in the pond and looking at the farm animals. Don't miss the restaurant. The food is very good.

We were so happy that the rain let up long enough for us to experience Middleton Place Plantation. My fiance and I had a wonderful time exploring the gardens and the paths. The Easter Egg hunt was going on and it was fun watching all the kids scatter for the eggs! The farm area was lovely, also!

I stumbled across this place by accident and I must say this is the most beautiful place in Charleston. The plantation is tucked away outside of Charleston and the property is manicured to perfection. The staff is like family, very friendly, and very knowledgable. I strongly encourage this to be a planned stop and make sure you visit the restaurant,... More

The grounds are lovely and the carriage ride is relaxing and you can cover alot of ground on the plantation. They even take you through a bamboo grove. Really cool! Make sure you eat at the little restaurant on the grounds. The prices are crazy cheap and the food excellent! They also have an animal petting area for the little... More

Even though it was a cloudy and somewhat rainy day, I did get to visit the home and see some of the gardens. I will have to return to view the gardens and Eliza's house. I will have to say though that the carriage ride was absolutely boring. The food in the garden market overpriced for the flavor of it.... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch at the restaurant before touring the house and grounds of the plantation. The highlight of our visit to Middleton Place Plantation was the guide who took us through the Middleton home. I think her name is Anne. She is extremely knowledgable and articulate, a former college professor. We learned a lot of history of... More

I would definitely reccomend a stop at this plantation. It's a little pricey for the budget minded (25+), but just a simple walk through the gardens is a 2 plus hour tour that includes traditional gardens, beautiful ponds, old houses, a petting zoo like experience, and strolls through ancient oaks and cypress. The azaelas rivaled augusta national in terms of... More

Absolutely one of the most beautiful walking gardens I've ever been in. We took the carriage ride, walked through the gardens and had a delicious Easter buffet at the restaurant. What a beautiful day.
