Wonderful setting and something different for each season, very hot day when we visited which made walking all of it hard work, but the Rose garden is something else. Nice Cafe which could have do with a few extra staff.

I was not sure what to expect having read some rather discouraging reviews but on arrival the initial impression was very encouraging - a modern and attractive entrance building with café and shop and plant sales leading to a view point from which signposted paths lead to the various parts of the garden. I began in the summer garden which... More

This garden is magical with wide sweeping lawns, woodland, ancient trees, beautiful gardens in swathes of block colours and heights. The rose garden will take your breath away with its wonderful fragrance. There is a platform in the shape of a ship's prow from which you can get an elevated view of the rose garden and sneak previews of the... More

The summer borders were looking stunning today. We didn't visit the whole garden as we were pushing my mum in a wheelchair, which is quite tiring! As a carer gets in free, the overall admission charge was not too expensive - don't forget to get your carpark ticket validated for free parking. Pretty good paths for wheelchairs.

The quality of garden design and horticulture here is excellent. It was much more contemporary than I had expected, given the Royal connections. The large scale of the gardens means that impact is made through very large scale plantings in bold colour blocks. The late season herbaceous borders were fabulous, so bold, the 60m long agapanthus border, even in its... More

A tranquil place to wander around looking at all the beautiful flowers, trees and bushes. A great shop too with lots of things for everyone.

We went here for a family day out on what turned out to be one of the most beautiful sunny days this year - just a hint of breeze, the skies deep blue, The first glimpse did not disappoint. In front of the beautifully designed Savill building a meadow of red, white and blue flowers celebrate the Queen's special birthday... More

Visited the Gardens for a couple of hours in th afternoon and enjoyed a lovely walk round admiring all the lush plants! We found the Hidden Garden with its little pathways very pretty. The lakes and New Zealand Gardens were also lovely. A very enjoyable afternoon and would definitely go back again to see even more of these gorgeous Gardens.

We had a lovely picnic by the monument and the lake. To use this area you don't pay an admission fee as it didn't involve going into the main gardens. You do however have to pay for the car park which is quite expensive, so you may wish to arrange in as few vehicles as possible.
