Borde Hill Garden
Celebrating 55 years since opening to the public, Borde Hill Garden is an oasis of beauty and tranquillity arranged as intimate 'garden rooms'. The Garden is set within 200 acres of parkland with spectacular views across the Sussex High Weald, with an impressive Elizabethan Mansion House nestled at its heart. Renowned as a plantsman's paradise, the Garden has been lovingly tended by four generations of the Stephenson Clarke family and now boasts a remarkable collection of rare shrubs, plants and champion trees, many brought back as seeds by the great plant collectors from Asia and South America over 100 years ago.
The Garden takes you on a fascinating horticultural world tour, from the quintessentially English Rose Garden, to the serene Mediterranean charm of the Italian Garden. Subtropical dells with towering palms and banana trees lead on to the romantic ruins of the Old Potting Sheds and the delights of the Azalea Ring and Rhododendron Garden.
Beyond the 35-acre Garden, visitors can enjoy beautiful woodland walks and lakeside strolls. The formal 17 acre gardens offer good accessibility with gentle sloping pathways. Group garden tours with bespoke catering are available. The varied event programme includes talks, Gin Festival and much more - see our website.
