An inspirational wander in Wonderland.

Firstly, entry to this experience is free so rating it less than 5star would be churlish. The venue is not easy to find but us worth searching out. There are many sculptures and... read more

Firstly, entry to this experience is free so rating it less than 5star would be churlish. The venue is not easy to find but us worth searching out. There are many sculptures and creations by various artists and all are for sale ranging from £40 to thousands. Some are incomprehensible unless modern art is your bag and some are just... More

Tucked away in Worcestershire is this glorious garden of many rooms. The plant in each room have been carefully selected to create a theme and in some cases are themselves are part of the sculpture. We went on one of the weekends when the art and sculpture exhibition was on. Hundreds of sculptures of all kinds, lots to grab the... More

The house is host to an amazing music festival every summer. The Live Experience festival showcases local talent and gives music students a chance to experience playing in front of an audience. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, kids are made welcome with face painting and art activities. There are lovely cakes and a burger van and the music is... More

Visited as a family for the first time this year. The gardens are well kept and the sculptures stunning. A price list was provided at the start of the 'trail' but it was often hard to correlate the piece you were looking at against the list. A more obvious number being displayed would certainly improve the experience. While the prices... More

Most definitely worth a visit - I went for the first time last year and then went back several times in the following couple of weeks that it was still open - delightful!

Went to Showborough with my wife, daughter. Son in law and toddler. As usual the gardens were looking great. There were some amazing sculptures and art pieces. For the second year running I have bought a piece I liked. Nothing too expensive though. Which why it is good to go. There are some things reasonably priced. Others very expensive. Great... More

Sculptures set in beautiful gardens. There was a variety of sculptures on display, all of which worked really well against the backdrop of the gardens. Free entry. Enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

Visited with adult daughter and partner. Loads of fascinating plants we'd never come across before (as keen gardeners), and beautifully put together in garden rooms with different atmospheres. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Donation asked for towards upkeep of garden or to the British Legion. Very happy to donate, as it had more for us to enjoy that many gardens that charge... More

We visted on a very hot day, but the gardens were looking their best for us. There were too many sculptures to look at them all individually, but they were quite amazing. It was very nice to be able to sit in the verandah and have some refreshments which were provided by the owners.

The annual display of sculptures by our friends in the garden of Showborough House was just as wonderful an experience as usual. Andy showed us round and regaled us with all sorts of comments and anecdotes. We had a delightful afternnon. Not to be missed, photos to come
