Overview

Groombridge Place has lovely walled gardens overlooking a 17th century moated manor house. The Enchanted Forest has something for all ages from Crusoe's World with its tree houses and rope bridge. The boardwalk also in the forest is a popular play area with its zip wire and rope swings. The giant tree swings are popular with young and old alike. Two birds of prey displays daily Tue to Sun and Bank Holiday Monday. Don't miss our famous Zedonk (half Zebra and half Donkey).

What a complete waste of time and money. Potholes down the drive, dusty old track parking miles from gate. At £13 pounds to go in it is a joke. the grass is long and the weeds fill the flower beds more than plants. The café...More

Pretty disappointing as friends had been last year and really enjoyed and this was our end of Easter Hols treat. The entry fee was £10 more than advertised online and at £50 for family of four we expected much more. Some bits weren't open or...More

I was very much looking forward to this day out but must say i came away feeling somewhat deflated. The entry price just isnt justified to whats available. The place is very unloved and generally quite scruffy. Unfortunately we went on a day that it...More

We took our 4 year old granddaughter to Groombridge Place yesterday as we read they had an Alice in Wonderland theme for the school holiday. The place was downtrodden and very expensive - £14.95 for an adult and £12.95 for our 4 year old. There...More

I suppose if you like gardens and flowers. I'd recommend penshurst place instead for adults. It's only a few miles away .
