“Gets a bit busy”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Beautiful but if it is a nice day people treat it like a beach, people have their 'spot' and it gets very crowded!

“very pretty”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

It has a variety of amenities on offer, tea and ice cream hut in the summer, childrens play area, parking, water feature and crazy golf. There is a pretty walk that you can do along the Thames to the lock and back.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Love going on random walks around the meadows and up the river (even though it is rather dirty looking) love the gardens gorgeous flowers and great back ground for taking pictures. Football area, swimming pool and other activities (none of which I've done).

“Good for photographs”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The old abbey ruins make a great background for photographs. Went there for the Jubile celebrations and managed to get some very good atmospheric shots
