Middleton should be your number one choice if, you do not have time to view all the beautiful plantations.
This is a must visit while you are in Charleston. Don't miss the House Museum on the property. I am a history buff and it has some of the most incredible historical items from Colonial and Antebellum periods!
We asked the people at the hotel, as between Magnolia and Drayton, which should be see. They both answered Middleton Place and we were not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful. The existing house is only a small part of the residences that existed before the civil war, but it was very interesting. A lot of original furnishings and material. They... More
We were met by a myriad of young folks who were not welcoming or helpful in trying to determine our package...one was downright rude, carriage driver was snappy in attitude as well. If you take a job meeting with the public, get over it.. The house guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour... Gardens were nice (not quite... More
Absolutely beautiful grounds. If you can only visit one plantation, go there. We visited Drayton, Magnolia, Boone Farm, Aiken Rhett, and Nathaniel Russell, all of which were wonderful. Middleton Place and Aiken Rhett were my favorites. Middleton for the beauty; Aiken Rhett for the reality of slavery.
Even though we were here in late November, when nothing was in bloom, we greatly enjoyed wandering the grounds and visiting the house museum and the gift shop. We walked all the paths on the grounds, saw various water fowl, and generally appreciated the peace and beauty. We look forward to returning in warmer weather.
There are so many great plantations and gardens in this area, but if you can only do one - this is a must! When in season you will see candles being made, a blacksmith, tons of animals - a working farm in progress. Open every day (even holidays) this is a great stop or a tradition to start with your...

We had two days here to take it all in. The tour of the grounds from the free slave house was excellent. We learnt so much about the wealth of Charleston and the reasons for the civil was from a southern perspective. The house tour was also very good and lunch in the restaurant was very good. Huge portions and... More
We spent Thanksgiving at Middleton Place. The property and gardens were simply amazing and after our wonderful buffet meal we took a tour of the house and strolled around for hours. It was a perfect day and a memory that will be cherished forever. I would highly recommend a visit and plan on spending the day there. We are already... More
Myself and my family had a lovely day in Middleton but through no fault of anyones we ended up visiting in Thanksgiving. Which was lovely because it was open and the one thing on my to do list while being here was visit a plantation of sorts. While grateful it was even open on thanksgiving I wish the complimentary tours... More
