The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

RHS Garden Wisley

Wisley is the historic home of the Royal Horticultural Society and undoubtedly one of the finest gardens in the world. Visitors can admire contemporary-style planting and garden design mixed with the traditional rose garden and mixed borders.

Throughout the seasons there is something to delight visitors of all ages, from of the mass of spring colour in bulbs and magnolias, to colourful summer vistas that evoke all the senses. From autumn's bountiful harvest and wonderful golden shades to a winter wonderland of evergreens, berries, vivid stems and frost-sparkled walks.

With around 30,000 plant varieties Wisley is home to some of the largest plant collections in the world and has something for all tastes. From mixed borders, rose gardens and alpine houses to meadow-style planting, a bonsai walk and an arboretum.

There's also a cathedral-like Glasshouse with three climatic zones. Discover quiet corners and hidden trails, the perfect place for a relaxing day out whatever the season. Complement your day out with a visit to Wisley Plant Centre and Gift Shop.
