We have secured a guided tour by the Head Gardener, Thomas Clarke, of these world renowned gardens at their annual peak.

The 200 acre garden has been tended for over 250 years: in the spring it’s alive with colours and scents of magnolias, azaleas and rhododendrons. The winding paths lead through densely planted groves with extensive water features, herbaceous borders, wildlife and bog areas, and woodland. There are 18th century cedars, a ‘Doomsday Yew’ and a collection of Nyssa.

Meet at the entrance for a 1pm start to the tour. The price is £15 for members, £18 for non-members.

There is free parking. Exbury Gardens, Exbury, SO45 1AZ, 20 minutes from J2 West on M27.
