Went here to visit the gardens! Had a lovely day out and thought they were stunning. The lady at the ticket desk was lovely and very helpful. They were able to provide a wheelchair for my granny who has a bad knee which was great! The gardens were well kept and we really enjoyed the day out. I understand the gardens are large and require a lot of maintenance, but they tickets are still quite pricey!

Picturesque and varied, plenty to see if you have the time. Beautiful way to spend an afternoon. I would not recommend bringing a pushchair however; it was much easier to carry the child around, with all of the stairs, and the pushchair was an inconvenience. The ponds could do with some cleaning though.

National Geographic called them the 3rd most beautiful gardens in the world. While the big house has been rebuilt after a fire,the gardens remained and are perfect for an 1 hour walk. Very diverse and beautiful

This is a very worth tour as it's bringing a very relaxing walk in the nature while letting the eyes and the imagination to explore the amazing gardens. The carefully selected plants and the nice arrangements will relax your brain distracting it from the daily problems. The gardens have a very nice lake as well. The staff was very smile, helpful and polite.

Pretty good overall. It's very well maintained and there's great attention to detail ok the garden. There's an entrance fee of (€11.5 as of 2022) but I think it's worth it of you're into nature walks. As you come into the paid area, there's a nice view to the lake. The area is nicely decorated with fountains and statues. You can go down to the lake area, and from there wall around it to the Japanese garden. There's a few good things to see there, it's well maintained, and you can continue walking to a tower which you can go up and get a nice view of the estate. If you take your time and enjoy the place slowly, you can easily spend at least 1 hour here. There is also a large park area outside of the main building which is also nice to walk around and free of charge, but the main attraction here really is the garden. There is also a garden shop outside with plants and gardening stuff for sale.
