Painshill is a beautiful award-winning 18th century landscape garden in Surrey. The 158 acre wonderland has something for everyone and makes a great family day out. Discover the mystical follies, historic plantings, the John Bartram Heritage Collection of North American trees and shrubs (Plant Heritage, NCCPG), and some of Surrey's amazing wildlife. You can spend a whole day at Painshill or there are shorter accessible routes around the Serpentine Lake. Dogs on short leads are welcome. Bring a picnic or visit Hamilton's Tea Room. Visit the Painshill Shop for gifts, greeting cards and to buy Painshill English Sparkling Wine.

Wow, what can I say about Painshill. I chose the location for a marriage proposal and not only was I blown away by the stunning lake, trees, bridges and follies - but also by the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. To say they went the extra mile would be an understatement, and Olivia in particular (someone give her a... More

We visited this place yesterday a great day out with a young family. We walked along the historical walk with plenty of things to interest young children. The kitchen garden was a delight to visit and very well maintained. The cafe was warm but the cake selection was rather depleted. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This fantastic place gets better and better. A beautiful end October Monday (19.5 degrees). Fabulous views at every point. Great for a mobility scooter. Much better lunch - had the Chicken goulash special - than on the previous visit. Super to see so many improvements here. The waterwheel was working today which was a treat. Only comment - please consider... More

Painshill Park had a tree day today which included hat making using twigs, a horse pulling a tree trunk, wood turning and planting seeds. A lot of thought had gone into activities for children including making pictures with leaves, feathers and nuts. The grounds are beautiful with magnificent white bridges, a Turkish tent, tower, water mill and the wildlife. No... More

The Conservatory is a beautiful setting for a wedding set in the grounds of Painshill Park. The venue is very spacious and decorated to suit. As for the grounds - it is vast! I would highly recommend this venue for anyone planning to hold a ceremony and reception all under one roof.

We can here as a group for the lecture, and guided walk. We simply loved the guided walk, through the beautiful grounds of Painshill Historic Park. The lady guide, Jan Clarke was very articulate and knowledgeable, we took the historic walk, past the vineyards above the lake, then to the gothic temple, down the otherside across the chinese bridge and...
