Middleton Place is an 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprising 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped Gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards. The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring.

I have been to Middleton Place at least three times and it never fails to be one favorite afternoons ever when I am in Charleston. I was with a friend this time who had never been there and it was just absolutely delightful this unseasonably warm February day. During our afternoon there we spent an hour and 15 minutes with...

This was a wonderful place to visit. We stayed at the Middleton Inn which included a tour of the House Museum, a self guided tour through the beautiful gardens, an interactive tour of the stable yards, evening wine and continental breakfast. This was a great experience in history as well as nature. We will go back again!

Loved my time at Middleton Place. I just purchased the cheapest ticket although I would have loved a tour guide to give more information (maybe next time!) The scenary is very dreamy and adds a special charm to a trip to Charleston. I would definitely go back (also maybe look at other plantations as well).

This is a wonderfully maintained and historic Plantation. We stayed at the Inn at Middleton to have the opportunity to spend a relaxing day enjoying the gardens and learning the history, and to enjoy dinner and lunch at the restaurant. Residing at the Inn allowed free entry to the gardens and historic house tour. For dinner or lunch I would... More

$86 for two people to enter the grounds and tour the house is a bit steep, but the gardens are truly spectacular and the reasonably priced restaurant is very good too. What remains of the house is modest, so at $15 per person for the tour, I might skip it and just do the self-guided tour around the gardens and... More

The grounds here are absolutely beautiful. You could spend hours taking photos. However be careful when you were planning your day according to the tour time schedules. We went on 3 tours. all three did not start or finish according to the schedule time. Because of this, we felt rushed and had to rearrange our schedule. Also, of the 3... More

We spent virtually the entire day and wished that we had more time. Not to be missed: the entire garden, the garden tour, the Beyond the Fields slavery tour, and lunch at the lovely restaurant. The tour guides at Middleton are the best ever!
