Middleton Place is an 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprising 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped Gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards. The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring.

Besides absolutely beautiful grounds and a wonderful house tour, you simply must enjoy a meal here. Each seat in the restaurant has a very nice view and the Lowcountry menu never disappoints.

The combination of beautiful, unique landscape architecture, river setting, ancient live oaks, flowers, ponds, and history make Middleton one of a kind. A must-see in Charleston. We live there and go several times a year. It never palls.

It's a place where you can spend whole day experiencing wonderful landscapes and relaxing atmosphere. Get to know a small but important piece of history there.

We only had time for the house tour and a walk around the gardens but would have liked to take some the other tours as well. The house tour is good, but the real treat here is the extensive gardens.

Definitely worth the visit for the grounds alone. The main house burned to the ground yet there is a smaller house on the property. My wife absolutely loved this place!

Visited Middleton Place during our Charleston visit middle of Aug. grounds, gardens were beautiful. A map will guide you around the grounds so as you are able to view the highlights of the area. Very nice, probably not for children as I feel they may be bored. Visit early morning or late afternoon because in the heat of the day... More
