Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway

Hampshire

"One of our favourite Rothschild homes (of which there are several), Exbury Gardens is well known for its spectacular displays of Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias and rare trees and shrubs. Exbury floats effortlessly between planting styles, ranging from the exuberance of the wildflower areas to the restrained elegance of the sundial garden with its carefully pruned high yew hedges. Wear your walking shoes - the two-acre rockery is also thought to be one of Europe’s largest rock gardens. Autumn is a particularly joyful time to visit as this is when the national collection of Nyssa trees set the garden ablaze with their fiery foliage. But visitors are met with a riot of colour throughout the year, whether it’s the meadow of Daffodils overlooking the Beaulieu River or the cool violets and mauves of the Hydrangea walk in summer. One of the best ways to see this garden is via the narrow-gauge steam railway, which runs tours through parts of the garden inaccessible by foot. Of all the things to do near Exbury, this 200 acre woodland garden should be top of the list. "

The Manor House Garden

Just over 32 years ago this historic garden at Upton Grey, was nothing more than an unkempt jungle.

The work on this garden's restoration has been an exciting and rewarding adventure of discovery.
