However it was in 1968 and they were horse riding in the gardens just a few feet away, escorted by their equerry. Don’t expect to see them when you visit. That said the gardens are more beautiful now than then and have a wonderful naturalistic feel. They are zoned and themed into seasons. Lovely expansive views. Something to see and... More

Free entry, because it was December, however, we had to pay for car parking (normally free if you pay to enter). Pleasant stroll around the Gardens chatting away. Enough to appreciate, even on a cold day such as this. We had our dog, who was allowed everywhere except the restaurant. Snack meal was very nice, although expensive, aren't all these... More

Free entry in January and February but there is still quite a lot to see!! We only live a mile from here so would be rude not to visit. Most plants well signed and some fine specimems. Gardeners friendly and knowledgeable and obviously very proud of their efforts. The temperate house was a nice break from the outside world!! Almost... More

As members we visit Savill Garden regularly. The restaurant has always been poor, so it is good to see it being renovated and hopefully this will improve things. Currently the only facilities are the small gallery cafe which has limited seating. The gardens are still interesting to stroll around though, even at this time of year, and entry is free... More

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!
