This was a very nice plantation to visit. I went with a girl friend and we stayed over 2 hours. The grounds are spectacular! The fountains and statues were really beautiful, I would visit again.

Beautiful gardens, a working stable with horses, goats, sheep. You will not regret a visit to this lovely plantation. The Spanish moss hanging from trees, dipping down into ponds and lakes is amazing. You must visit the restaurant, best Fried Chicken I have ever had!

Middleton Place is beautiful. We happened to visit when they had craftspeople demonstrating how things were done in plantation days...everything from pottery to pulling cotton on a spinning wheel. Getting to see various animals was really neat for my kids and the gardens were more...More

We took 2 tours: the slavery to freedom tour and a garden tour. Both are included in the basic entrance fee. Both docents were well informed and effective. The gardens are extensive. Watching the sheep roam the grounds brings the plantation to life. Not many...More
