Attraction details
Reviewed 31 December 2012

What an amazing place. I am not just saying this as an ex-pupil from the 70's but the volunteers have done an amazing job of restoring and the constant up keep of the gardens. There is a wonderful park trail, parts of which can become muddy. Check out the bird hide on the main lake and get to learn about the heronry on the island.

Open on the first Sunday of every month from Feb to Oct and other special occasion days its well worth the visit. Stop off for a tea and a superb peace of cake, I don't remember the cake being that good back in my school days.

Check out their website for more details http://www.gattonpark.com

I strongly recommend the "Gatton Country Fair Day" which is fun for all age groups.

This place holds some very special memories for me and probably many other people. I was an old scholar here in the 50s and 60s. The grounds have been superbly restored and have been the subject of various TV program's . They are open to the public on specific dates just visit the web site to find out when there are tours etc. Famous as a rotten Borough having its own MP.having also being once owned by The Coleman family famous for making money out of what was left on your plate"Coleman's Mustard" The autumn colours were reflected from the trees in the lakes a lovely place to visit . The school has played a great part in putting the landscape back in a condition that can be enjoyed by all.

Gets very muddy in wet weather but worth it for a quite walk. So many visit Reigate Hill and Colley hill and ignore this place. Gatton Park is a gem of a place . Only slightly ruined by NT insistance to try and turn all their properties into a tourist spot. Too many signs and obvious organisation. - just let it be.
The restoration of the capability Brown landscaping is good, such a shame that the head teacher of the local school in his autocratic way has single handlely tried to place the school central to the Park. It is an ugly carbuncle and should be once again be screened by high trees.
