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.

Lovely park with some nice flat camber-free paths perfect for wheelchairs and buggies of which we had both! A few slightly steeper bits though these can be avoided if you pick your route carefully. Wheelchair users pay £7 with a free additional person. Nice cafe and toilets too.

I had a spare day so decided to go visit Painshill Park as it was only down the road from where I was staying. I would suggest follow the signs for the park as my sat nav took me to a different lane. There was plenty of parking, it wasn't that expensive to get in I didn't think (£8) .... More

We had the most amazing time on Saturday 10th December for our Christmas party. When we arrived, there was someone to greet us in the car park and showed us where to park. The entrance to the venue was also clearly signposted well. No one managed to get lost in the dark. The arrival drinks were flowing and it was... More

I visited the Park as part of a photography evening specifically to photograph the various structures and vistas illuminated as part of the Christmas festivities. It was a clear cold night, so the group welcomed the late opening of the cafe and the opportunity to buy hot drink and food before venturing out. Although I have visited the park in... More

We visited Father Christmas at Painshill Park with two young children aged 6 and 4. The Park itself is beautiful and we were pleased with the grotto itself. However this has been completely ruined by staff in the gift shop who through ill informed, judgmental comments reduced my wife to tears. Our youngest son is Autistic. We popped into the... More

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
