A very worthwhile visit offering good shopping, some of which is pretty individual. Excellent food available and the gardens are well worth walking around.

We Often visit trentham gardens on a weekend for a good brisk walk around the lake. Really enjoy having a coffee shop on each end for numerous drinks!! Well worth the season ticket if you visit regular - plenty to do with the kids too

The gardens are kept immaculate and are accessible for everyone, with its different areas, from a great play area, maze, barefoot walk to the Italian Gardens and walks around the lake itself. Ideal in any season as there is always something... More
