over 5 years by Selina Botham 4 / 5What a feast for the senses this garden is! With areas designed by both my heros in Garden Design Piet Oudolf and Tom Stewart Smith.
over 5 years by Rosalind Rosewarne 4 / 5A short stint of house and chicken sitting for friends in sunny Shropshire allowed me ample time to pad round some glorious gardens (including The Dorothy Clive garden and Wollerton Old Hall) in the environs. The last one was Trentham Gardens a huge estate with some spectacular gardens. Think mature meets modern. I visited in the winter last year and was breath taken by Tom Stuart Smith's Italian Garden borders so felt a summer visit to see it all in it's full glory was both appropriate and frankly a must do whilst staying less than an hour away!
over 5 years by Anonymous 5 / 5Visited Trentham Gardens yesterday, and enjoyed every minute. The Gardens are fantastic, the food was good and shopping reasonably priced with plenty of excellent choice. The staff from restaurants to shops were pleasant and helpful., and the toilet facilities were exceptionally clean. All in all, a great day out!
over 5 years by Ron Whiteley 5 / 5The gardens are, quite frankly, the best that I have seen in the U.K. and the volunteer staff that I spoke to are second to none. Congratulations to all concerned!
over 5 years by Anonymous 5 / 5Wonderful day out for all the family. Enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the lake and enjoyed watching those brave enough to take on the 'barefoot walk'. The main reason for the visit though was to see the gardens - we were not disappointed! Breathtaking prarie style planting. Pleasantly surprised by the 100 ideas gardens also - the vegetable patch was amazing!
almost 7 years by Anonymous 4 / 5My husband and I took our two children to trentham gardens (5 & 8 yrs) for the day during summer holiday, and they loved it. We went on the boat, train and they especially loved the novelty of the bare foot walk, which was fun for us watching them. Lovely kids playground and different types of gardens to explore. We took a picnic. Woodland walks and den area to play in. Bit of a shopping experience for my indulgence at the end. Must say, its not cheap, but then what family day out is? (when you compare to the theme parks, this is cheaper). We also tried the monkey forest, and the kids found boring after 15 mins, so this was a waste of money for us. Really dissappointed as we thought this would be the best bit. Recommend the gardens only, but do each on separate day, as trentham gardens needs a day on its own to be leisurely.

over 7 years by Tom Hughes 5 / 5I went to Trentham gardens in the summer and had a picnic by the lake with my mum and brother. We kept on getting swarmed by the ducks which was sweet it was a really hot day so we all went and stood by the ice cold water fountain. Great day.
almost 8 years by Anonymous 5 / 5Great day out. Lovely gardens, beautiful lake, shops, monkeys; you name it. Amused by the single bad review out below, which relates to a trip to the garden centre by someone who doesn't like garden centres. Even that has the Duchess of Sutherland's cottage at the back of it!
almost 8 years by max who is 13 4 / 5I think the gardens are brilliant, Its great for a day out with the family and there are loads of activiteys aswell, such as, boat riding, train ride, fishing, and others.
about 8 years by Anonymous 5 / 5I last went to Trentham Gardens when I was about 5 or 6 years old back in the early 80's and it was really neglected back then. So when I went this weekend I was pleasantly suprised. The garden centre and shopping village were very impressive and the main gardens have had extensive work done to them. I had a really good day out pottering about the shops and gardens and I'd definately recommend a visit.
over 8 years by Mrs Sue Clarke 4 / 5A Fantastic day out ,food is very good value for money.gardens and shops are all displayed beautifull. the staff are all very helpfull.
over 8 years by William9 4 / 5Trentham used to be one of England's great gardens. Then it went through a really bad period of neglect. Now it has an interesting planting design (I think by Tom Stuart Smith) and it is on course to recover its place in the pecking order of garden designs.
over 8 years by Tom 1 / 5Overpriced rubbish on sale in the main building which is the 'Garden Centre' If you want to pay Â£100 or more for a piece of wood tacked onto a metal base then be my guest.
over 8 years by Melanie 4 / 5Great for a family day and flower garden is lovely in the summer!
