Went for a nice ride out to Virginia Waters for a nice walk and lunch. Unfortunately we were not impressed the car park was £2.00 per hour to start, then we went to the restaurant for lunch and found it was being renovated so they just had the small area open for soup sandwiches etc. It was awful freezing cold...

We visited Savil Garden during its January free entry period, the gardens were well tended for the winter and still offered some lovely winter displays with the fire dogwood. The temperate glasshouse had a few blooms. For my wife studying horticulture the visit was very educational. Although the main cafe was closed for refurbishment, we still had an excellent lunch...

Pricey, cold food served in a haphazard way in a cold space. Queuing with trays is tricky as the till is at the wrong end of the serving counter! Avoid except for the odd snack, cake or coffee. Lunch was a disaster!

Although beautiful, the Gardens are somewhat overpriced for their size, so I would recommend you go in Dec, Jan, Feb when they are Free to enter (parking is expensive, too, all year so try & find parking u the road and walk or cycle in). Much of the wetter (westerly) parts are off limits as they are quite boggy, but... More

The garden was free to visit in December and just after new year. It is well set out with several different sections. They had an activity for children (a gingerbread man hunt) that the kids seemed to really enjoy. I enjoyed the NZ section!

Our family visited in December and went on the gingerbread man tour. This kept our 4 and 2 year olds occupied for an hour or so whilst we walked around the gardens. There was also a cinema room showing Christmas cartoons. It was all nicely done. Entrance was free in December. Although parking still has to be paid for. I... More

Our family took some much needed post Christmas exercise in visiting The Savill Garden. On a beautifully sunny winter 's day we strolled around the garden, following the route suggested by arrows on the path. This directed us to see and smell the interesting flowers in bloom in December. All the borders were neat, tidy and well tended, and the... More
