Had a fantastic day at the World Gardens. Beautiful but also really informative - I learned so much. Very clever, but also beautiful plants. Love the way you can walk right through the beds on narrow paths. Cactus house was stunning (and I don’t even...More

We didn’t really know what we were expecting when arriving at Lullingstone castle. Firstly, on a normal day it is £9 for an adult and English heritage members get 2for1! Great, except that as it was Easter weekend (we went Easter Monday) there was just...More

We attended with the GCCG classic car group and had a personal guided tour of the World Garden by its creator Tom Hart-Dyke. This undoubtedly brought the experience to magical life as he recounted the harrowing experience in Central America while out plant hunting that...More

The grounds and surrounding area are lovely. We planned ahead and made that sure we had time to do the guided tours of both the house and the world garden. This is a privately owned, family home, the reason for it being called a castle...More
