Make the information center your first stop at RHS Garden Hyde Hall and grab an “I-spy” spotter sheet and follow themed trails around the garden. Indoor and outdoor activities, such as the preschool gardening and craft club, will entertain kids, and conditions are usually ideal for kite flying. Get hands-on with bulb and seed planting, scavenger hunts, and wild honey and apple tasting. Bring your own snacks to enjoy in the picnic area or garden, choose from a variety of cooked meals at the restaurant, or on warmer days enjoy the sheltered tea garden.

Having visited Wisley several times in the past we decided to give Hyde Hall a go and we were pleasantly surprised. The grounds are lovely and very well rendered , we particularly loved the Robinson..... more »
Beautiful gardens which are probably best seen in Spring rather than a grey day in July. Nonetheless, the RHS does a very good job with helpful staff, clean toilets, free maps and plenty of information about the plants who are the real stars. Very good disabled access too with mobility scooters for rent if you can't walk and there is plenty of walking involved. Good for kids too as there are playgrounds and child- friendly activities. There's even a picnic area if you find the catering prices a bit pricey.
Had a lovely visit a couple of weekends ago to see the gardens. The borders were stunning and full of late summer colour. We ate at The Gardeners Rest overlooking the stunning gardens and the food was tasty. Overall it was a really enjoyable experience for anyone who is keen in horticulture.
