  • Amazing botanical garden with huge verity of habitats and plants. Just car park is expensive even with National Trust Cards. Great food and hospitality. Very good ice creams, very recommended. I can't wait to visit this place during golden autumn.
  • What a great place, the gardens were out of this world. The house was massive and open to the public. It also has the national seed collection again worth a visit in the grounds. Wakehurst gardens cover over 500 acres. Has two food outlets and plenty of picnic places. Well worth a visit.
