Wonderful experience. It was nicer than some of the royal gardens in London. Amazing views, walks, and demonstrations. It was great to talk to the historians and find out that they actually get a percentage of what they make that is sold in the gift...More

The experience at Middleton Place was wonderful. Unfortunately, the carriage tour was sold out early in the day, but I took advantage of the slavery tour. The guide was very informative and answered all of the very large groups questions. I quasi-followed the self-guided garden...More

I cannot say enough about Middleton Place. The most beautifully landscaped gardens in one location. Take a peaceful stroll through the gardens or along the river. There are many benches throughout the property where you can sit awhile and ponder the majestic beauty. I thoroughly...More

Be prepared to be filled with peace and solace. Summer is too hot to go, but spring and fall are perfect.

Half an hour out of Charleston, the plantation is well worth the drive out. The gardens and exhibits were very good and the tour of the house was a highlight. Lunch there as nice break in all of the walking

We got a lot out of our visit. Charleston was an important commercial center and the point of disembarkation for hundreds of thousands of African slaves. These slaves supported plantations like Middleton Place. The docents here conveyed some sense of what their lives were like...More

This is the place to learn about the history of the south. The grounds are exquisite including American's oldest landscaped gardens. January is peak time for the many varities of camellias, but there is usually something flowering most seasons. The walk down toward the Ashley...More

Spent several hours at the plantation and also touring the house. Middleton is a beautiful place steeped in history. The landscape was just spectacular. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Middleton is full of history. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant is excellent. To sit and absorb the scenery is to totally fell the present. I have been through the house tour several times.

I had some uneasiness about visiting a former slave plantation. The grounds are beautiful: the natural beauty and the manicured gardens stand in contrast. There are several locations on the property where there is educational material about the the operation of the plantation, rice agriculture...More

Middleton Place is a centuries old plantation that has been maintained, as best as practicable, as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries. Pathways are sandy, not paved, but wheelchairs can usually access virtually all of the... More
How far is it from the airport

Response from Don B | Property representative |
Middleton Place is approximately 18 miles from the Charleston International Airport. You should plan on a drive that will take about 30-35 minutes.
Where is the cruise ship pier and is there public transportation near the pier. Also, is there a Hop on Hop off Bus available inb Charleston. Will only be there one day and want to take advantage of this beautiful city.

II was told they do have a pier stop although I had not seen any ship. Although I did see dolphins!
