We were there for the eclipse, so not the best time for the flowers! But the grounds are lovely and the Downton Abbey Clothing display was entertaining! I'll definitely check it out again when the flowers are in bloom!

This was my third visit (and best) to Cheekwood. The excellent exhibit was on the original costumes from Downton Abbey. The tour of the Mansion and the grounds is well worth your time. Since the exhibitions are changed frequently, Cheekwood is different with each visit.

Beautiful gardens in a natural setting. A bit hilly and a cool day destination. Many plants and fauna to enjoy.

I am a member of Cheekwood. I highly recommend the Dressing Downton exhibit which is closing soon! The high tea is a special treat but only two more are scheduled and you must have reservations! The story of Cheekwood is unusual and not well known...More

OMG - if you like gardening, plants, or natural beauty then Cheekwood is a must. We got reduced tickets on Groupon the day of our visit. Dressing Downton Abbey was the featured exhibit in the mansion and was just wonderful (I'm a fan of the...More

Call or email...and then if no favorable answer...you can just post an unfavorable review... BUT I would think they would respond to your concerns before you have to go that far. Good Luck
