2. Nymans Gardens
The Nymans Gardens are open all year round, but if you visit it right now, you will experience the initial bursts of spring in bloom. The Messel family created the amazing garden with experimental designs. The plants in the garden come from all over the world. You can take a stroll in the garden and relax or you can take a guided walk. Keep in mind that there is no public transport available to Nymans Gardens directly, but parking is free and alternatively, Metrobus routes 271 and 273 stop nearby.

3. Walk a llama
This may sound a bit unusual, but you can actually walk a llama! This guided walking tour (don’t worry, the llama isn’t going to be your guide) leads you through the breath-taking scenery of Ashdown Forest. Llamas are bred for trekking, so they will happily and peacefully walk next to you. The walk takes about an hour and is only suitable for anyone above the age of 14 years.
