A great day out for all ages and of all persuasions -assuming you like the outdoors. Easy and harder walking routes, plenty to amuse children and places to picnic if you don't want to use the on-site café. Fascinating and under an hour from London.

I would make the caveat that you must already be a NT member to appreciate this. The cost to visit as a one off is not worth it. The place is quite small but make an idyllic little walk. I have not been for a while, but the simple cafe compliments this place. I have just been ranting about how... More

We have visited many times. It is a favourite place to go particularly in Spring when there are carpets of Bluebells under the trees. The walk down to the lake and boathouse is lovely and there is a tea room with inside and outside seating. There is a charge but as National Trust members you get in free.

Located just outside Godalming, on the Hascombe Road, I've driven past loads of times but am so glad I finally got round to going in! It's only £7.20 per adult (£3.60 per child or £18 for a family ticket). Created by Dr Wilfrid Fox (Chairman of the Roads Beautifying Association) over 15 years from 1937 as an experiment in different... More

A beautiful place to be at any time of year, my partner and I have walked here many times. There is a little tea room on exit which looks lovely however we have never been.

Have been many times. Wonderful in spring for primroses, snowdrops followed by bluebells and magnolias; then there's a wonderful little azalea walk later on. The colours in the autumn are wonderful. Nice little cafe at the entrance.

A lovely relaxing walk at any time of the year. Always something beautiful to see amongst the varied trees and shrubs.

These NT gardens are down the road from where we live and as we are NT members we get in free but they are worth visiting in different seasons. There are some gorgeous views that are a bit of a climb but do worth it. I love the boathouse but watch out for the bees in summer that have made... More

We certainly chose the right time to visit Winkworth. A beautiful warm sunny spring day. The bluebells and azaleas were in bloom and the perfume was incredible and the vistas stunning. Colour every where and sweet perfume from the yellow azaleas hanging in the air and we were seranaded by birdsong. Looking forward to returning in the autumn

It was my first time at Winkworth Arboretum. A few logistic points followed by a tip of where to see the best bluebell spread. The journey took about 1 hour from central London - thank goodness for the satnav. Highlights were the bluebells - see my tip below and the azaleas as well. This NT property is not a mega... More
