  • 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.
