This is an amazing park and gardens with interesting and unusual follies. I am a member and walk dogs here twice weekly - very safe place as all dogs must be kept on lead. I never get bored as I love to watch the changing seasons and scenery.

We have been members of Painshill for a couple of years now, it is a lovely little oasis, the grotto at Christmas is lovely for kids, the garden is great in the summer for a wander after lunch, if you liek gardens you will like this one.

Painshill Park near Cobham, Surrey is one of the finest remaining examples of an 18th-century English landscape park. It was designed and created between 1738 and 1773 by the Hon. Charles Hamilton.We visited this park many times in the past few years and we always enjoyed long walk around.Perfect day out for families with kids and dogs Highly recommend! ❤🇬🇧

We visited the park today 6th February- greeted by a huge rabbit and paid for the two of us to enter (including gift aid). We did the long walk round the park and had to dodge and get of the tracks twice while the maintenance vehicles were passing. They were full of the chain saw crew to burn and cut... More

We booked this for three two year olds and parents. A LOT of walking with not much to see. Finally arrived at the refreshment tents and it was so busy but spent a lot of money on mince pies with Hairs in them -gross. Thank fully the crystal grotto was open and that made the visit worth while. More lanterns... More

Lovely park with some nice flat camber-free paths perfect for wheelchairs and buggies of which we had both! A few slightly steeper bits though these can be avoided if you pick your route carefully. Wheelchair users pay £7 with a free additional person. Nice cafe and toilets too.

I had a spare day so decided to go visit Painshill Park as it was only down the road from where I was staying. I would suggest follow the signs for the park as my sat nav took me to a different lane. There was plenty of parking, it wasn't that expensive to get in I didn't think (£8) .... More

We had the most amazing time on Saturday 10th December for our Christmas party. When we arrived, there was someone to greet us in the car park and showed us where to park. The entrance to the venue was also clearly signposted well. No one managed to get lost in the dark. The arrival drinks were flowing and it was... More

I visited the Park as part of a photography evening specifically to photograph the various structures and vistas illuminated as part of the Christmas festivities. It was a clear cold night, so the group welcomed the late opening of the cafe and the opportunity to buy hot drink and food before venturing out. Although I have visited the park in... More
