We're off to see the Wisley, the wonderful Wisley of Gardens...

Our favorite flowers of the day but don't quiz us on their names!

"Look daddy, that fish has a mustache"

Beaux's first encounter with a Daffodil


A bit of Tom Foolery with Daddy

We always make the most of a sunny day (you never know when the next one might be!) so decided to go to Wisley Gardens, I had been before with a friend when Tiger was a toddler and what I could remember was the beautiful range of flowers (obviously!) the openness (not too shaded) and the amazing restaurant! It didn't disappoint! It costs £11.75 (including gift aid) or £10.85 (excluding) per adult and children under 5 are free so it wasn't an expensive day out, you could easily spend a whole day there if the weather is nice and take a picnic to keep costs down.

Spring is a great time to go as all of the flowers are blooming and look so pretty! The restaurant food is amazing and what I didn't notice the last time I went was the family section (which I wish more restaurants had) it had some crash mats and soft play area, only small but enough to keep the kiddies entertained while we really enjoyed our tea and cake!!

There's also a large green house with more exotic flowers and a huge display on roots which is child interactive. Tiger particularly enjoyed the green house as he thought many of the plants looked like monster with tentacles!

Although busy there was plenty of space for Tiger to run about, Beaux found a new love of daffodils, he literally couldn't take his eyes off them so while Tiger played in the adventure playground I found a quiet spot for him to explore. Beaux's now sitting up unaided so it was beautiful watching him feeling the grass, wriggling his little toes with delight and wondering how he could get close enough to sample the daffodils!

If you are in the area and have kids, enjoy flowers or getting your camera out, it's definitely worth a visit.

  2. Thanks for the beautiful photos! RHS Wisely was on my list of places to go but now I'm moving it to the top. Sometimes gardens aren't that fun for children, glad to hear they enjoyed themselves.
