I love going to Middleton anytime of the year. I live close by so I pop over often to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this amazing garden. A must if you visit Charleston.

House tour is good and the grounds are beautiful. Great display of life in that era. The grounds are fairly level and easily walked.

It takes about 2 hours to visit the gardens and the stables .., It’s beautiful and well preserved. You can also visit the last remains of the House it’s a museum and you have to book a tour to do it.
