What a beautiful place. A gorgeous garden and mansion. Self guided tour of the mansion was fabulous. Take your time and take it all in. The individual gardens are very beautiful and serene.

We had not been here for 10 years. Combined the gardens with the Downton Abbey Exhibit. Had a wonderful time. Staff was friendly. Easy access to various parts of the gardens. Enjoyed the gift shop and the restaurant.

I really looked forward to visiting Cheekwood and was disappointed in what I found. While the grounds and gardens were well kept, the landscaping was uninspired. It was pretty, but row after row of potted mums stuck in the ground was not up to my...More

We went on a Sunday morning when the Downton clothing exhibit was the special treat at Cheekwood. That exhibit has moved on by now, but they do specials all year round which you can check their web site to see what is available when. Advance...More
