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.

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...

Some of the events like the Gothic Tower and the Crystal Grotto I believe are only open at weekends so it is best to check out first. The lakes and gardens ,especially the Walled Garden are so peaceful and do take a camera with you. Lovely little well stocked shop for and... More

We visit Painshill maybe 20 times a year and each time and season it is different. Today the grapes in the vineyard were almost ready and the cygnets were almost Swans. A small cafe is now open in the Gothic Tower maybe just at weekends meaning coffee and cake is available during your walk. This park is a great place... More

Absolutely beautiful and tranquil spot. Perfect spot for photography. Beautiful grounds to walk around and their caves are a must see. My friend and I visited the caves late afternoon so we were very fortunate to get a 1 on 1 with their guide. A must visit for anyone in Surrey

I came here to while away a few hours after dropping my kids off at thorpe park. Absolutely lovely and wonderfully relaxing. The points of interest were all lovely... Especially the Crystal Grotto... Stunning attention to detail. It's lovely for kids, couples or solo visits.

Maybe because it's got the word 'Park' in the title some visitors reviewing their experience might have got the wrong end of the stick? Please , therefore , no future plans to develop any method of cycling around it or install a play area in the landscape. My so called friends took me to Painshill in September after I had... More

We visited Painshill Park on Heritage Weekend, when lots of attractins are free. Despite a rainy day, we has a really good time. The garden has sweeping vistas with really well placed viewpoints. It has a number of features and follies including a tower, crystal grotto and gothic temple. A bit eclectic, but really great! It also has a good... More

Lovely peaceful visit catching up with long term friends. Beautiful scenery, good food and abundant crops in the vegetable walled garden. Had great chat with the gardener and so glad they are not there for show but used. Friendly staff and volunteers.
