Once you have found the place (not very easy - allow time for getting lost) the whole experience is delightful - the gardens, the guides and staff, the tea room/restaurant (and cakes) and the shop. As you would expect the gardens are kept to a...More

We were in the first group to view the gardens this year and it was awfully wet and cold. That being said these are exquisite gardens with so much depth and unusual plants. There are so many rooms with different structure and themes. Really quite...More

This is not a royal tour but a garden tour, as long as you arrive expecting that, you will love it. HRH has created and nurtured a really beautiful and quite different garden, it was not like the standard National Trust gardens you might expect....More

Spent 18 minutes hanging on the phone waiting for "someone" to be free to take my call. I gave up at that point. Clearly not sufficient people manning the phones. Prepared to wait a few minutes but 18 minutes plus, I find unacceptable.

We attended talking gardens. Very well organised just felt a little rushed on the garden tour. Chris Bradshaw's talk was great but because he overran the garden tour was curtailed. Lovely gardens even in very early spring full of interest with amazing scent. Famous staff...More
