    Not within Walking Distance
    Buy tickets in advance. English audioguide was helpful. This palace is about ten km driving distance from central Warsaw, but no issues getting rideshare to-from (less than $20). There's a major bus stop a short walk away. The gardens are nice but see the palace inside. Gardens are more magnificent in Lazienki Park. Our advance tickets were for opening time, before the school groups arrived.

    Nice Palace and Grounds
    This is a nice palace which is well worth making the trip out to from the city centre. We got there on the bus from the city centre which was easy and low cost. Make sure you also walk round the grounds.

No English guide (audio or in person) available, which greatly diminished the experience. We also had to fight groups for passage. Some rooms extremely dark which made it near impossible to read explanations. Also some stairways were dimly lit making it dangerous ( not all steps even). Be prepared to take public transportation for return as there are no taxi stands close by.

A beautiful palace with even more beautiful gardens. It's a pretty quiet place where you can rest and enjoy beautiful views.
I highly recommend it because it is a lifetime experience, and what is also importants it is cheap to get there (at least for students).

Good to tour this palace/museum with a guide to get the full impact. Interesting insights into the aristocrats’ way of life! The palace has had some 120 owners over the years, but is now a govt owned museum. Beautiful, attractive exterior; interior with some Baroque decor; lots of paintings. Surrounding gardens are probably fabulous in summer, but not much to see when we visited in October.

Wilanov Castle in Warsaw and the adjoining cathedral are really amazing for at least half a day visit. The exterior and interior are magnificent with extensive gardens and parkland. Taxis are very cheap in Warsaw so it was very inexpensive to get there and the taxi driver was so reliable he came back at
1 pm sharp to pick me up! The castle also has a great little restaurant.

We visited the Palace on our final afternoon in Warsaw and were running late due to very slow service at a nearby bar where we stopped for a quick(!) beer. Had not realised that last entry is at 3pm on a Thursday and so were in a bit of a mad panic to get the tickets, but were re-directed from the entry to a separate ticket office out near the front of the palace grounds, over 100m away. Despite being a few minutes late they still let us in.
If you have seen a few palaces, the interior is a bit underwhelming, fairly standard antiques and furniture, no really outstanding pieces or rooms or frescoes. The gardens are small but impressive (fully in flower during our visit in July). But I think the outside of the palace is the best part, particularly if you are lucky enough to have bright sunshine bring out the yellow (our day was cloudy but the sun did come out briefly to get a feel of how it looks).

A beautiful palace that is a feast for the eyes but there is little substance provided as a museum. We got the audio tour and walked the entire property. We left without a clue of when and why the palace was built, by whom, or how its residents lived. The display numbers of the audio tour and the flow of information were seemingly nonsensical. For example, it began on an upper floor with a tour through Asian-themed rooms and zero basic information about the palace. We then wandered through each display that had mind-numbing detail on some things while others simply describe what we’re seeing with our own eyes. No beginning, middle, end. No cohesive narrative. Impossible to retain this information. What a waste. Visit for the visuals but don’t bother trying to learn anything. The grounds and gardens are beautiful but are cheapened by tacky light-up decorations and giant artificial flowers. It takes away from the natural beauty.

A beautiful place, both the park and the palace. It has its charm. Palace erected in 1696 at the request of King Jan III Sobieski. To see the whole thing, you need to have a whole day. . The palace itself is beautiful, giving an idea of ​​the splendor of royal residences. The museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens. There are numerous ponds and branches of the Vistula in the park where you can go boating. t is worth visiting this place when visiting Warsaw.

We didn't visit the Palace, only the gardens but it was very pleasant, great place to go to on a sunny afternoon. The outside of the Palace is beautiful and its architecture is a cross between Roman and Polish architecture. Definitely a pleasant walk

Wonderful place situated in the neighborhood of Wilanow. Beautiful lush gardens with exquisite array of flowers complimented with fountains. Great place to stroll around with your loved one/s. I visited here thrice and it was always well maintained. Very reasonable entry fee, even cheaper if you are a student, handicapped.

Picturesque views of the palace. Very memorable if you visit in the peak of summer.

It is a bit away from the main centre of Warsaw but you wont regret it one bit. Definitely worth the 20 min car ride.
