An autumn visit for a family lunch in the tea rooms. Not a huge menu - well, it is billed as tea rooms, not a restaurant - but we 5 adults chose 5 different dishes and agreed they were all excellent. Lovely friendly staff, tasty & well-presented food, very reasonably priced. My spicy beanburger was excellent. And they got all... More

What a pleasant way to spend a few hours. We were visiting relatives in the area and they suggested we met up with other family members here. We had a lovely walk through the grounds and took in the autumn colours. We regretted not taking our binoculars to watch the birds but still enjoyed half an hour by the lakeside.... More

If you want to have a wonder around the gardens or watch birds on the marsh flats then this is the place to come. There are walks, cycle paths and everything inbetween. If you are young/old or both there is something for everyone. I quite half hour in your lunch break, or a day out. This place caters for everyone,... More

Was not a fan of the new soft play. It's very small and there's nothing exciting there for the kids. It's also freezing in there, the children had to keep there coats on while playing as it was so cold!

Really lovely colours on the trees today,and very quiet! We popped into the cafe,and sat in the walled garden, really clean,and the staff were helpful, had a nice selection of gluten free cakes for my partner. Toilets were a bit tired but they probably get a lot of use! Lovely visit.

Upton Park is a place to visit that will not cost you the earth. You can walk your dog in vast open spaces. Take your children/ grandchildren into the woods to make a den with the fallen branches or just walk around the gardens enjoying the sites. Finishing your time with a cup of tea. .

I drove past and decided to turn around to investigate as I had about an hour to spare between jobs. So glad I did. I will definitely return as this is a beautiful Park, so much to see, I only saw a small part of it and am keen to see more. No charge for parking, toilets on had and... More
