Had to pay to visit even though there was no cafe or restaurant and we didn't get to enter the main conservatory due to a wedding. Should have been informed prior to booking as we felt like intruders. However, nice grounds to visit on a warm summers day.

The Christmas at Kew Light show was a truly wonderful and emotional experience. Will be planning to book this incredible walk for next year straight away.

We go every year to Syon Park for the Enchanted Woodland evening in a large group. It has become a tradition for us to start the excitement of the festive season through this event. This year we were quite disappointed with the theme. The beginning was glum and grim with an odd mood being set which ruined our excitement. An accident, a person depicted as lying face planted on the ground. The children were quite puzzled. We could hear people around wondering why the tone had been spoilt. The rest of the lights were not as spectacular and the theme was not really in keeping with the name Enchanted Evening. Sadly we have decided to switch to Kew Gardens from next year.

We have been here before but not for a few years and took the opportunity to visit at the same time as visiting the new garden centre next door. Only the downstairs is open due to Covid but there is still plenty to see and we took 1.5 hours. The house dates back to the 16th century but was heavily remodeled by Adam and then parts of it were done in the 19 Century. The house is an Adam masterpiece inside with not only decor but also much of the furniture too. The guidebook is worth the £5 for the detail about the family but to be honest it is light on detail about the rooms themselves and so the room guides were very important to the experience and we found them to be very knowledgeable. We had lunch in the restaurant which I can recommend before spending about 45 minutes strolling around the garden. The conservatory is the highlight and there is some autumn colour. The walk around the lake is very pleasant and there are picturesque views but the garden isn't spectacular. For some reason the booking system gave us a local resident discount even though we live 3 miles away so we paid just over £10 each which is a very competitive price for such an amazing house.

Having visited Kew Gardens the day before I was not expecting this. Just a walk from our hotel and OMG. I loved it here. I could've stayed in the conservatory all day and a beautiful walk in the gardens around the lake was the icing on the cake.

Wonderful staff who made our visit unforgettable especially for me as a disabled visitor. Special thanks to the house manager (did not catch your name) and kind Ben.

Visited the house and gardens and it was really nice. The house itself is outstanding, fantastic furniture and paintings to see.

What a hidden gem, which exceeded our expectations. Such a beautiful setting and the house and conservatory are grand but elegant at the same time. The staff really went out of their way to be helpful and considerate when my brother and arrived late due to traffic.

Journeyed to Syon park as it was listed as a 'partner garden' for those with RHS membership. So essentially a free visit! The sun was shining and the garden was an absolute treat to walk around. Toilets very near the entrance to the gardens should you need them, just as you walk past the impressive Syon House.

The real showstopper is the stunning conservatory which just stunning. A photographers and botanist dream! You can spend time wandering through marvelling at the architecture and the gorgeous plants before making your way into the main gardens. There is a wheelchair/pushchair friendly path around the outside of the greenhouse to avoid stairs. Plenty of level paths and bridges for those unable to walk as well, although you'd need to keep an eye on small kids due to the lake.

At times if was like going back to the prehistoric period, with huge fern like plants. The trees were beautiful and shady. Lots of benches to sit in sun and shade and just listen to the wind in the trees. We did two circuits in the end, and saw plenty of things we missed first time round. It really is charming.

An added bonus is the gorgeous garden centre next door where there are two restaurants to eat in, one more a cafe, and a fantastic shop selling delicious produce. We spent as long in there as in the park!
