“Nice place for walks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

Gatton Park is a nice place for walks for whole family. Far from city, close to nature, makes this place great for escape from city and noise. I reccommend this place for day out or picnic for whole family. You can find more pictures from the area on photo -blog:

“Snowdrops In Abundance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

A beautiful walk around the park with lots of hidden gardens. The snowdrops were beautiful and we rounded a corner and came upon a carpet of yellow aconites. There were also othere spring flowers such as helibores and a few crocus.

We did not walk around the lake as it was still mudddy from all the rain we have had and will save that for next time. Teas were available and there are lots of outside seating too. Dogs are welcome on a lead.

“A hidden gem inSurrey”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“"A Special place to many"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

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.
