We were looking for somewhere that was easy to access while I was on crutches. I'm pleased to report that Wakehurst place was easy for me. The reception is very close to the car park, and there is a cafe within the reception building with lots of space around each table - ideal. there were no imsurmountable steps, nor a ramp that required yards of extra walking (which is often the case). We got free entry with our NT cards, and will return one day to walk round the gardens properly. I had a delicious roast beef sandwich, but my partner's soup of the day was a bit too salty. It would have scored 5 out of 5 if the soup had been better.
Good shop with a nice range of Christmas items.
