Although the free parking and clean toilets are great if you just want to shop and eat, the £8.70 entrance fee for the rest of the place is far too high. We did have a 2 for 1 voucher (from visitstoke.com) thankfully, so probably just about had our money's worth.The Monkey Forest is an extra £8.50 per person, so we... More

Lovely park but the cost is just ridiculous even with the vouchers there are so many places that won't cost you a penny that are every bit as nice, such a shame..

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you didn't find Trentham Gardens value for money. For many years, The Trentham Estate was neglected and left in ruin but since it became a private estate there has been a vast amount of time and money invested in its transformation, maintenance and upkeep. We do feel that the admission charge is... More

Visited Trentham Gardens with family and had a lovely day. We browsed around the log cabin shops, which have something of interest to everyone's taste. I particularly enjoy the aroma of the Yankee Candle shop and Brown & Greens mini food hall is amazing. We strolled around the formal gardens and although due to the time of year there wasn't...

My fiancé and I bought our tickets online at a discounted rate which in the end gave us a pretty decent saving. We had a lovely walk around and stopped for a warm cup of tea whilst sitting outside in the sun on a cool spring morning. Very pleasant

This is an amazing place for absolutely everyone in any physical condition. I would recommend it to everyone. Our granddaughter thoroughly loved it trying to find the fairies watching the animals and just running around. The food was well worth the money and topped it of with ice cream. She slept well that night
