Magnolia Plantation

Since the 1670s, the Magnolia Plantation has sat on the lush land at the edge of a fresh water reservoir that is adjacent to the river. Founded by the Drayton family, who had then recently immigrated from Barbados, the plantation has seen generations of Draytons come and go. They've also seen hundreds of springs, heralded by colorful azalea blooms, and hundreds of winters, marked by blooming camellias and trees with draping spanish moss.

Today, visitors to the grounds can immerse themselves in this history as well as in the 60 acres of lush gardens. The past comes to life on the award-winning "From Slavery to Freedom" tour, which takes patrons through the slaves' quarters. Visitors can also tour the plantation's gorgeous house, or drink in views of the gardens—either on foot, or on a boat cruise that winds down the Ashley River.

Customer Reviews

This is a beautiful place to see and a wonderful place for pictures!

We loved our visit to Magnolia Plantation. The tram tour is great! Our guide was hilarious and fun! The gardens really bring a lot to a day visit with beautiful garden paths, inlet views, beautiful bridges, and our daughter loved that the animals walked about in the petting zoo. I highly recommend visiting! It has so much to enjoy.

We visited one weekend in February and had a very enjoyable time! We visited both the Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and the Audubon Swamp Gardens. Unfortunately, the boat tours are down for the season, so we lost out on that purchase, but they did give us a voucher to return within the week. Though the gardens are not overflowing with flowers in bloom just yet, there were still plenty of plants to see and wildlife as well! It was nice visiting this seasons because we were safe from the usual summer chiggers and bugs, and with a light jacket it was a very nice walk! I would definitely recommend stopping by the conservatory and observation tower. Bring a pair of binoculars for animal spotting. Please, please, please follow posted rules and regulations in regards to the wildlife present. Have fun! :D
