In the Night Garden at RHS Wisely - 28th June, 2017

3rd June 2017

On Saturday 3rd June, my 2 year old daughter Mia and I drove up to RHS Wisley for a special In the Night Garden event. Located just off the A3 before the M25 interchange, the gardens at Wisley are an absolutely beautiful sight on any given day, so they made a perfect venue for the weird and wonderful land of Cbeebies’ In the Night Garden.

The prospect of meeting Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy were almost too much excitement for a toddler to handle, so no time to hang about admiring the view! We headed straight to the In the Night Garden tent, which I can assure you, did not disappoint. The backdrop was panelled with images from the show, making you feel very much inside the set. Finished perfectly with green felt floors, a toadstool seat, bean bags for weary feet, playmats and a white picket fence, Mia was very much in her idea of heaven.

The day had been organised into repeat segments so there was always an opportunity to wander around the gardens or have a bite to eat, without feeling like you were going to miss something. From story time, children’s yoga, sing and dance (where the children went bananas) and meeting your In The Night Garden favourite, there was something for children of all ages.  There  was even an additional tent were you could decorate your own flower pot and plant some seeds to take home (additional charge of £8).

 The staff were friendly, energetic and really passionate about what they did and this showed in how much fun the children had, as their enthusiasm was so infectious. For Mia the singing and dancing was an absolute winner as not only did it get the children moving (and that too on a hot day), the parents were also coerced into participating by clapping and cheering, and generally encouraging the madness!

And the fun didn’t stop here. The gardens offered plenty to do from hat making, picnicking, seeing the ducks, beautiful walks and admiring the tractors, you really should take a day to make the most of the experience.

Mia had an absolute blast, meaning she was completely exhausted and promptly in bed by 7pm! All that was left to do was for mummy to put her feet up with a “pat on the back” (*translation- glass of wine).

Good to know: on a sunny day there are plenty of places to enjoy a picnic. Equally, there are a number of options for food to purchase, including children’s hot meals and lunch bags. For little legs I would recommend taking your buggy as they can then nap/rest whilst you still enjoy the day.
