RHS Wisley Gardens


Little ones will love the 12m high glasshouse which houses a huge variety of exotic plants from all areas of the globe.

Excite young imaginations by taking them on a journey through the flora of the world. Look out for the stunning orchids and vast jungle-like displays of creepers, palms and tree ferns. Children will love experiencing the different climates of three interlocking areas within the Glasshouse, ranging from dry temperate and moist temperate to a spectacular tropical zone.

With a learning area and growing lab, children can get “hands on” experience when it comes to the requirements of nurturing delicate species of plants.


Such incredible displays of plants, flowers and foliage will be a delight to most – especially the more green fingered of our guests! From lush grassy areas to intricate mixed borders bursting with seasonal colour and tranquil woodland gardens – a trip to Wisley Gardens is guaranteed to invigorate the senses.

There is a centre of education for gardeners of all ages and a wonderful restaurant which serves fresh seasonal produce. The restaurant alone is fast becoming a destination in its own right due to the skill of the chef and the tastiness of the dishes.

Admission is free for all RHS members – browse prices for adults and children here.
