Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
The 81-hectare (200-acre) Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway is famous for its collection of colorful flowers, rare trees, rock gardens, exotic fruits, and wildlife. Take a scenic stroll through the many pathways that weave through the award-winning gardens, or sit back and relax on a chauffeur-driven buggy. Hop aboard the steam train and pass some sections of the gardens that can only be seen from the railroad. Children will enjoy spotting a number of woodland moss animals. A cafe and gift shop are located at the entrance to the garden, and in the summer months there is a small cafe in the grounds. Wear durable shoes, as the pathways change from pavement to gravel and dirt throughout the gardens.
