Really enjoyed our visit here. Spent the whole day and still didn't see everything, the woodland paths seemed to go on for miles. There were different garden plant habitats and if you are a plantaholic like me, you would love it! The perennials were varied...More

Our visit would have been more enjoyable had the weather not been coldish with lowering skies, but you can't control the British weather. The gardens and arboretum are huge - you could easily spend a whole day here. Due to my painful knee we restricted...More

We visited the gardens with our granddaughters who love flowers. Although August is not the best time to visit a garden, Howick still provided a nice show. It is quite large with both a garden area and an arboretum, and there are wide walks though...More

We visited Howick Hall on the advice of friends and we were not disappointed. Be aware that it is only the gardens that are open to the public apart from the lovely ballroom which serves as the cafe. This is not your usual National Trust...More

Well laid out, welcoming and if you like plants and birds a great place to meander for a few hours. Staff friendly and signage helpful, though as another reviewer says, would be nice to have some plants labelled. Special mention for the tea room, well...More

This was our second visit to Howick Hall Gardens and on this occasion we chose to explore the East Arboretum which meanders on trails towards the coast, 'The Long Walk', although note that at the furthest point a one way gate prevents re-entry to the...More
