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 went to Middleton place recently with two other people, both of whom had been there before and enjoyed it. It was my first visit though and we all agreed parts of it were lacking. The biggest problem though was the house tour. The guide...More

The grounds are beautiful and you will do a lot of walking here. We did the "Beyond the Fields" tour, which was more talk than walk, that was fine with me because I learned an amazing amount of history in that hours' time than I...More

What a fantastic plantation! The gardens are beautiful and the lakes are very calming. Unless of course you're afraid of alligators as the place if full of them. Saw lots of herons and other water birds. We got incredibly lucky and got to see a...More

We happened to visit during Plantation Days. They were re-creating tasks that took place long ago. Making candles, spinning thread, tanning hides etc. A very wonderful time.

if you like history, then yes, the house tour is insanely good and the other exhibits are good too. If you JUST want to see gardens, maybe skip it if it's too cold to walk around for at least 1 hour outside.

You can but you still have to pay the admission that includes the Beyond the Fields and the Barnyard Tours. Once inside you can enjoy the property with or without those tours.
