Wisley Gardens are beautiful and offer plenty of space for varied walks.
Great cake selection on offer and yummy stews in the winter if you fancy lunch.
A BIG warning to mums with babies though if you want to visit the Butterfly exhibition in January February be ready to leave your pushchair outside of the glasshouse in the rain and have to carry baby, bags and coats as they have a policy of banning pushchairs at all times for this exhibition - even on weekdays!Read moreLess
"We go the Wisley through the year and as RHS…"
We go the Wisley through the year and as RHS members it's free to get in. The gardens transform in colour as the seasons change and, as you would expect, the gardens are wonderful, immaculate, imaginative. There are also some really amazing fish (I think carp of some sort) in one of the lakes who feed at your feet and always put on a show.
At the moment, however, the main green house has been transformed in an incredible butterfly house.
I can confess to knowing next to nothing about butterflies but the multicoloured works of art fluttering around are truly remarkable. And HUGE! Took my three year old with some school friends and other mums and we had a lovely time. The children could run wild on the grass (it's in no way stuffy) but were captivated by the butterflies. Knowledgeable people were on hand to answer the numerous questions and do so happily and with excitement which is catching.
Large cafe and lots of child seats. Good coffee and delicious cake!
Several restaurants to cater for everyone and in summer its lovely to sit outside and eat.
Well worth a visit and really easy to get to being right beside the A3 and M25.Read moreLess
