  • Did the Garden Tour, led by Fiona: fantastic! The staff all around were lovely and made the visit so good: from the police officers and guards at the entrance, to the shops and tea room...100% great customer service. You park, meet in Orchard House and the tour starts there. The gardens are outstanding, photography is not allowed. But if you enjoy gardening, is 100% recommended. I visited mid-May, and all the rhododendron are in flower, which are spectacular. Was told the delphiniums will be full on in June. In Feb they open to see the bulbs in the arboretum. After the lovely walk, made even more interesting by our guide, sharing tips and anecdotes, you can visit the shop (super reasonably priced) and the tea rooms. Definitely worth visiting at the change of seasons as there is something all the time. And all the proceeds go to the Prince's Trust. Bravo.
  • Wonderful and informative tour of a very well thought out, planned and maintained garden. HRH Prince of Wales respects nature and this really shows in the relationships around the garden. Quite pricey but very special and profits go to Princes Trust Foundation. We were lucky to book onto a very quiet tour which made it all the more personal.
