Lovely gardens and woods aligned along streams and lakes. Well worth visiting during each season for the varying displays of the many different plants. I would suggest requesting access to the lesser known nature reserve when you enter. It's usually very quiet and you can wander for 3-4 miles through the beautiful woods. There is a cafe, and large shop. One negative is that despite having National Trust membership providing free entry, the car park charge is £10 if you stay for longer than 2.5 hours, with lesser charge for shorter periods.

Visited the gardens in June. Beautiful but access to many areas is very challenging for anyone who is in a wheelchair or not fully ambulant. What we could see of the seed bank is very interesting but again disabled access to this area is not well signposted. A small ramp down two or three steps would make access easier. Signage should be placed at the approach to the bank indicating access facility. An enjoyable and pleasant day.

Driven past Wakehurst over the years thinking that our youngest kids would prefer other activities. But we booked a spot over the summer half term and had a really good day. We hired the adventure rucksacks -- please note that you borrow these and return at the end of the visit! Our kids were delighted with the activities and other accessories such as compass and magnifying glass. As a family we loved exploring and took a picnic. The shop was also well curated so we picked up some gifts and cards. We will definitely be coming back.

Beautiful gardens, take your walking legs its massive. A place to eat and toilets dotted around. Lots of places to sit on all the paths you can walk. Plenty of easy parking. Wheelchairs access very good. Wheel chairs to borrow at the entrance to the park, not sure if they are free as we didn't need one, but there were a lot available.

Absolutely beautiful place! Amazing! Like a sweet shop of trees. Downgraded though as poor communication. The cafe at the far side was shut and it wasn't just me who walked there expecting to buy a drink and snack. I crossed the coronation meadow to find the gate at the bottom shut and padlocked so had to climb over the gate! The walled garden was barred and closed. The woodland walk on the other far side was closed with the gate chained. These things should have been clearly communicated. Ended up paying £10 for a sandwich, bag of crisps and a coke in the main cafe. Bit of a rip off.
