It's one of our favorite places to go for a day out with kids. Lots of paths for walks and great areas for picnics and resting. Spring and early summer are perfect time to visit the gardens and see them in full bloom. However with good weather, Congreve Gardens are welcoming in every season (as long as it's open). Small...

Went for a look with my wife and must say it is just a super place. You can walk for ages and see loads of plants , trees and shrubs. It is very educational as I Wouldn’t be great at plants.Will most certainly go back again.

have been here loads of times and no matter what time of the year you go, it is always beautiful. Have to admit that Spring is the prettiest though.

Start to finish a kaleidoscope of colour and a miasma of trails. Subtle, yet stunning. But no dogs allowed. No how.

Myself and my 2 children aged 11 and 12 often go for a walk in mount congrieve. They give you a map and the kids love finding their way around. It can take around one and a half hours and there is something interesting to see around every corner. Then you can have a good cup of coffee and a... More

Absolutely fabulous gardens with a collection of trees, shrubs and flowers from all over the world. Great place for a wander and a cuppa in the lovely cafe afterwards.
