Such an awesome place to visit. Lots of beautiful grounds, waterworks and sculptures. They also have a butterfly house and shuttle tour. Even the gift shop is beautiful. Lots of shade on a hot day and very friendly staff.

The gardens are beautiful and so are the sculptures. I recommend the garden tour. There is a tram to take you around to the different areas. We also enjoyed the creek tour and the birds in the zoo area

Response from Lauren J | Property representative |
Hi there, Yes most of the gardens are wheelchair accessible and the boat ride is also. Brookgreen has three wheel adult "strollers" that may be easier to push through some of the garden pathways.
