The Falkland Palace was warm and welcoming on this wet, blustery, Spring day. It is brimming full of history. The guides were particularly good, explaining each of the rooms. Sadly, it was too wet to visit the gardens. The tiny village of Falkland is a delightful village. Good tea shops with excellent cakes.

A fantastic day out in a gem of a historic building steeped in tales well told by the capable guides. Too much to take in one go. They are dressed in period costume which makes it even more atmospheric. Unfortunately for the less able, there are lots of stairs to negotiate. The well kept grounds are for another day. Will be back.

First trip round this place and loved it. The gardens are great and shall be brilliant when more in bloom. Lots of areas for picnicking. Inside the Palace was well set out for going round and I thought all the guides were brilliant. Very informative and engaging - amongst the best I've come across.

Great place to visit. The first ever tennis court is here. Lots to see. Beautiful gardens. A small gift shop is on site. Not good for people with limited mobility as there are lots of stairs & most are spiral. Falkland itself is a lovely wee place. Some nice places to eat. & walks nearby.

We went round the garden, absolutely gorgeous garden, lovely flowers, lovely orchard and bee garden: it has the oldest tennis court in the world. I frequently come and wander around the garden and enjoy it each time, planning to go into the palace as well. The palace shop is nice as well and the staff are lovely and very helpful. Would recommend going here.
