I was glad we had booked the first slot as the Brentford Gate car park (with Blue Badge parking) filled up quickly. Due to extra security, getting into anywhere is more time consuming at the moment, but once we were into the gardens, we felt safe wandering around. There are toilets almost immediately, with a separate huge accessible one. I walk with two crutches so was glad to reach the cafe area to grab a drink and rest. Only 2 adults are currently allowed into the excellent children’s play area which is understandable, so our family group had to split up so my 2 year old great niece could have fun, which I was sad to miss. We did not go any further on this visit as the purpose of our visit was to see each other in a safe outdoors environment. It’s worth checking exactly what still remains open due to current Covid restrictions.
This cruise was soo nice! If the weather is good you can go to the top and see the view of London! But, there is still inside seating incase you don’t want to be outside of if the weather is not good. Food was ok.. entertainment was really good too I’d definitely recommend this to anyone!
The gardens are expansive, and very well-maintained. Although some of the buildings are closed, there was plenty to see at the beginning of October. There are lots of cafes, and what we ate was pretty good. My only quibble is that it's all a bit expensive, but I guess that's London.
Despite COVID and the showery weather we had a great time. There were plenty of indoor spaces for when it rained and the gardens in autumn are stunning! A word of advice, take a picnic and bottled water with you. Food and drink is pricey.
despite being a windy and cold day the visit was perfect and the queues to enter Temperate and Palm House very short and well organized. Pity the tree-top walk was shut.
