I took my mum here on weds, very beautiful gardens, we saw work in progress in a few areas, was a little disappointed to see the play area and restaurant area in poor state with several cobwebs! These areas could do with some tlc, we look forward to another visit perhaps restoration is planned? Would be nice to see some information points with some history noted, church was lovely overall really enjoyed our day out, would recommend a visit!

This is a nice place but expensive for what there is to see.
The food is expensive, the train is expensive.
If you you have a sandwich, a cup of tea and a trip on the train it will set you back around £16.
Not cheap for a few hours!

What a waste of money. Not a lot to see.
We had to pay £1 to take our small dog in.
Asked for water and helpful young man got a bowl and was then told off by some girl and had to take the bowl back leaving us to search for the only dog bowl on site
Will not go again they ar every anti dogs

We visited Bicton Park start of July 4 adults and 1 child. The grounds are lovely and you can spend hours walking round the acres of grounds seeing all the different plants, trees and shrubs. The gardens are lovely with nice water features.
We went with a small child. The indoor play area was good although the indoor cafe was closed which was a surprise to many using this although there was a coffee machine which you can pay for a drink.
The outdoor play area was rather good with plenty for the kids to play on,although the outdoor crazy golf kiosk was closed aswell was the outside food/drink kiosk but again there was an area with coffee and vending machines which the coffee machine was out of half of the drinks and the vending machines were out of order. There was a sign saying if the kiosk is closed you can obtain clubs and balls for the golf at the main front shop, which is too far to go just to have a game of golf!, perhaps a message could have been made on entry to the park!
The maze was ok although as per other reviews you can see over the hedges and see the way easily.
We didnt go on the train but went into the church which was good to see as it was open to view.
Overall really nice place to visit, lovely grounds, downside kiosks need to be opened especially in summer months. Would recommend.

We spent a great day here, different types of gardens, there is a narrow gauge train which takes you around some of the area if you don't want, or can't, walk very far. Very peaceful when we went as school holidays hadn't started so I would imagine it could get a lot busier at weekends and during hols. If you love your garden then this is for you.
