The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Borde Hill Garden

2018 is an exciting year for Borde Hill Garden with 125th anniversary events throughout the season celebrating the Stephenson Clarke family being at Borde Hill for over a century.

The Round Dell will feature a new style created by RHS award-winning designer Sophie Walker, while the Long Dell will include a unique ‘Infinity Box’ installation with new and rare plants reflected in infinity mirrors. During the summer, Paradise Walk will be in full bloom with exotic and vibrant herbaceous planting, whilst the Rose Garden is a feast for the senses with the heavenly fragrance of over 700 David Austin roses.

Borde Hill combines outstanding vistas with tranquil outdoor garden rooms including the delightful Azalea Ring and Rhododendron Gardens, Rose Garden and scenic Italian Garden, plus subtropical dells and ruins of Old Potting Sheds.

Beyond the Garden visitors can enjoy beautiful woodland walks, lakeside strolls or explore the grade II* listed parkland. Children can let off steam in the adventure playground and dogs on leads are welcome. Events throughout the season include horticultural talks and family activities during the school holidays. The formal gardens have gentle sloping pathways and offer good accessibility. House and Garden tours are available for pre-booked groups, offering bespoke catering options.
