PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THE GARDENS ARE OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK, THE HALL IS ONLY OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON TUESDAYS, SUNDAYS AND BANK HOLIDAYS. Arley is a place of enormous character, charm and interest. Visitors are frequently struck by the warm and intimate atmosphere and the feeling that Arley is a much-cherished family home. The Gardens, which are amongst the finest in Britain, are outstanding for their vitality, variety and historical interest and are particularly celebrated for the magnificent double herbaceous border. The Hall is an impressive example of a Victorian country house built in the Elizabethan style.

Described as an Victorian Jacobean Hall; the award winning gardens are the highlight of the visit featuring a Grotto, tree lined paths, pool, a walled garden and even a Tennis court. There are areas set aside for wildlife and picnics and all of the paths are well maintained. Spring is the best time to visit. Like the gardens, the Hall... More

The whole complex of house and gardens are well worth the time to visit. The house is full of period artifacs and the staff are very helpfull. The gardens are well cared for and it great to wander round....when its sunny. There are cafe's and shops.

We are lucky to live about 600 yards from Arley Hall so we get to visit often. Arley Garden Festival in June is always worth visiting.The displays are always impressive and its a lovely day out for the whole family especially as its often sunny in June.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Arley Hall last night. The floral displays in each room were lovely and the ladies choir who sang carols and Christmas songs were marvellous. Very entertaining. There was a lovely atmosphere. The front of the hall looked very impressive illuminated with a beautiful purple glow.

There is something charming about Arley Hall, from the wonderful ladies that staff the gift shop, to the quirky meandering gardens. It offers a gentle day out, which is particularly welcome for those of us who live and work in the city. Today was especially lovely as it was Arley's Christmas Floral Extravaganza. The house looked beautiful, with each of... More

I'm sorry I can't write a great review! I was totally disgusted and disappointed today. The house was very interesting, but where was the "Extravaganza!" that was advertised? My family and I were expecting there to be craft stalls and beautiful floral Christmas arrangements, but these were lacking! As for the afternoon tea - Well that was a total rip-off!... More

Good morning, Many thanks for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed visiting Arley Hall & Gardens, especially as your friend didn't think it a good idea. The afternoon teas were really well received this year and the mini trifles were especially delicious. I had to eat 3 or 4 of them, just for quality control purposes....honest. Hopefully you can...

The gardens are beautiful at any time of year especially the walled garden. The house has an intimate lived-in feel about it. I especially like the library. It's worth visiting at Christmas when the house is tastefully decorated.

I was very impressed with Arley Hall and Gardens. It is surrounded by beautiful, picturesque countryside, further magnified by the Autumn season. The entrance is impressive, with perfectly aligned trees and a clock tower. The gift shop and cafe are excellent. A wide range of home cooked food and selection of cakes. Also great selection of loose leaf teas served... More
