Obviously no roses but a wonderful light display. Sadly finished now however the garden, shop and restaurant is really worth a visit. After a stroll around the garden have an excellent lunch in the garden restaurant.

Amazing what has been achieved out of a field 20 years ago. Beautiful roses and other plants. Chritmas lights very attractive and very tasteful. Of course food and souvenirs are a bit on the pricey side but the RHS is for the upper middle class...More

Not over impressed with the event. Very pricey for a walk around the gardens with a few lights, expected much more. Restaurant very pricey and the drinks in the room set up for snacks in throwaway cups were £2...too much. A free cup would have...More

The gardens were full of lovely autumn winter shrubs and trees with sculptures everywhere I booked 3 suppers £12 each for 2 courses. The lasagne was not satisfactory. Being made with strips of pork it was stringy and frankly tasted awful. There was a choice...More

On our visit there was a themed tree walk that particularly emphasised the autumn colours. There are beautiful formal gardens with exquisite clipped yew hedging dividing up the themed garden spaces. Our only disappointment was that part of the garden was closed due to tree...More

No RHS gardens allow dogs apart from assistance dogs, but if you want to visit a nice garden with a dog I suggest Bicton Botanical gardens in south Devon, they make a small extra charge but dogs are welcome.
