Borde Hill Garden, an oasis of beauty and tranquillity, is arranged as intimate 'garden rooms'. The Garden is set within 383 acres of parkland with spectacular views across the Sussex High Weald, with an impressive Elizabethan Mansion House nestled at its heart. Renowned as a planthunter’s paradise, the Garden has been lovingly tended by five generations of the Stephenson Clarke family and 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.

Your visit will take 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 Garden, visitors can enjoy peaceful woodland walks and lakeside strolls. The formal part of 17 acre garden offers good accessibility with gentle sloping pathways. Group Garden tours with bespoke catering are available. The varied events programme includes Plant Fairs, Outdoor Opera, the Sussex Guild Contemporary Craft Fair, Gin Festival and a special 130th Anniversary celebration this June - see our website for details.
