We visited Waterperry on a beautiful sunny day and sat in the garden for lunch. Dogs were welcome and there is a large area for a walk. The gardens are beautiful and there is a garden centre if you like to purchase plants

We've visited Waterperry Gardens on a couple of occasions. Since we haven't been out too far since my wife is on chemotherapy we decided on a bright and sunny Wednesday morning to make another trip. It was well worth it. The place was heaving when...More

This is a lovely place, but it's a little confusing. There's a garden centre, a museum, tearooms, some gardens, a stately home (which didn't seem accessible). We stumbled on it by following the road signs assuming we'd find some sort of botanical gardens. When I...More

The gardens at Waterperry are great and staff lovely. With two young children we can't focus too much on that but the activities they put on during the children's holidays are a great excuse to explore and we all have a wonderful time. Keep up...More

Yes its very pretty, but at nearly £9 per person its very expensive for what's there. There is a plants area for purchasing a variety of plants. There is also a cafe here as well. Free parking, toilets in the car park absolutely stank.
