We really enjoyed our tour of the gardens and wetlands. The wait to tour the house was too long and couldn't wait. The concession stand was out of many items but what was available was good.

Beautiful place!! We weren’t able to do anything but walk around the main gardens and the swamp. Kinda pricey to just take a walk in the garden and swamp. But it was beautiful! Used a Groupon, so that helped. COVID has reduced how many people can be on each tour so things sold out quickly.

About Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

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 during the award-winning "From Slavery to Freedom" tour. 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.
