  • We've been members for 2 years. Our son is in a wheelchair, restaurant can be crowded, but food is always excellent. Pathways are mainly wheelchair friendly. Nice art and craft displays. Pleasant walks, always with a surprise around the corner! Magnificient magnolias. Well stocked plant nursery.
  • Last day of Spring with glorious sunshine. Many trees are budding, Magnolia and Cheery Blossom are spectacular within the compound. The Winter Garden is still popular with many exotic plants and trees on the show. Looking forward to many visits as the summer season draws near...
  • A beautifully designed and maintained garden full of specimen plants and trees. For younger visitors, there are activities including a brilliant tree house. The gardens have two separate cafes, one near the entrance serving excellent buffet style food, and the other a cafe on the other side of the gardens which is generally much quieter. There is also a garden centre and a shop which is stocked with the sort of items which are normally found in a National Trust properties. Most main walking routes around the gardens are suitable for buggies/wheel chairs and won't be muddy on wet days.
  • Victim of health and safety culture. Garden closed due too light breeze. Risk of tree blowing over and squashing somebody. Check on web site before going. They did post the closure , and they have to make the call before garden opening. Won't bother going again. Wasted the day.
  • My husband and I had a wonderful time at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens today. The cherry, magnolia blossoms and camellias looking magnificent. Thank you, we will be back very soon!
