Lovely gardens with lots of interesting plants and garden designs to see. Very friendly staff and lovely food in the restaurant/cafe. Great for all ages and physical abilities, and I will definitely be going again.

Another great time spent at this beautiful garden with the extra twist of an evening with thousands of lights. The trees and shrubs are highlighted by careful lighting using coloured filters some of which change colour. All the paths were marked by an enormous length of fairy lights along the path borders. Wheelchair access (I am in an electric chair,... More

Me and my Mum had a lovely walk round Wisley on Boxing Day to blow the cobwebs off and walk off our Christmas dinner. It was just so nice, we had a pot of tea and cake in the cafe, a must before we started our walk round Wisley. What a inspiration it is for ideas on gardening even in... More

Always a good walk and as the seasons change it is always different. Great to take the kids as it will always wear them out. Restaurants operate in their own economic micro climate so beware. Great playground at the top of the hill and the glass house will help educate them. Membership is good value as if you go a... More

We have annual membership with the RHS so not sure of the price of entry each time, but over the past few years we have found it to be a nice place to visit with our now 12 year old daughter at any time throughout the year, different plants in bloom each visit. They also do different events etc such... More

We came here on the last day these lights were switched on. It was really really busy but beautiful lights. With the added bonus of the beautiful lit up trees, shrubs, & glasshouse etc. We stopped and got hot drinks & cake to walk round with. Both very nice but pricey for what we had.

Have been a member for many years and love the gardens. We went today and even though there isn't that much in the way of colour it was still great and amazes me on every visit. But... what so let's it down is the catering. Admitedly the main resteraint is good, but pretty much everything else is poor for the... More

We only went to Wisley because Kew Gardens is closed on Monday and Tuesday,we arrived as dusk was falling around 3.30 and went straight to the glass houses as the tropical one closes around 4pm and then spent some time in the cooler and larger one,which was beautifully decorated for Christmas, then walked through the gardens following the light trails...

Really good afternoon wandering around the garden and admiring the very effective planting (and good labelling). Library staff were very friendly and helpful and some lovely second hand books. The giant flower installations for the Winter Walk were attractive during the day and even better after dark. Excellent lighting on the trees created a great mood and the interactive "lamp... More

I'm going to keep this short as I think you already know what it is like. Beautifully kept gardens, RHS standard snack shops, and very professionally run administration. Try going for their Butterfly experience in Spring time or the lights at Christmas. If they do Shakespeare in the summer of 2017 go to that as it's fabulous. If you are... More
