Lovely gardens to wander around. We didn’t go to the house because it was a brief visit. The toilets were clean and it had a nice shop. The play area was located quite far from the main gardens area. I liked the allotment area. There...More

Kingston lacy is a wonderful old house and much of it is accessible. The gardens are also very picturesque.

Went to Kingston Lacy to finish off a great day, after having a brilliant meal in Wimbourne a walk on the estate was just what the doctor ordered.

Magnificent gardens, lovely walks and a charming house. The highlights of the house are paintings by Breughel, Lely and Tintoretto (among others) but there is plenty more to see if you are not particularly interested in art. Don't bother with the Stables Restaurant unless you...More
