Borde Hill Garden

Spring is here, which means birds are singing and flowers are blooming! What better way to enjoy this then by a spring walk in Borde Hill Garden (20 minutes north of Brighton)?

What to expect
See rare shrubs and champion trees, enjoy tranquil outdoor garden rooms including the delightful Azalea Ring and Rhododendron gardens, fragrant Rose Garden and scenic Italian Garden, plus subtropical dells and ruins of old potting sheds. Borde Hill Garden has been passionately tended by four generations of the Stephenson Clarke family and has recently been transformed with herbaceous plantings for summer colour and interest. The 17 acre formal part of the Garden with easy access and gentle sloping paths make it the ideal place for group visits.

Beyond the Garden
Visitors can also enjoy magical woodland walks and lakeside strolls, picnic by the lake, or watch the kids play in the adventure playground, beyond the Garden. There are also unique events throughout the season, such as a Sculpture Trail, Roses in Bloom and Kids Activities from Spring to Autumn.

There’s more
Make sure to get a special plant or gift in the shop, or enjoy a vintage tea in the garden. Alternatively, spoil yourself in Cafe Elvira or Jeremy’s Restaurant.

Plus
Dogs on leads are welcome and house and garden tours are available. Plus, Borde Hill is also ideal for weddings and is a wonderful setting for filming and photo shoots.

Borde Hill Garden is open from 10am to 5pm on weekdays and from 10am to 6pm at weekends. For more information, click here.

Enjoy spring!
