  • Fantastic place to visit. The gardens are always changing with "plants of current interest" helpfully signposted. The tranquility is wonderful. In contrast, there is plenty to keep the children interested here too, with the tree house being one of our kids' favourite places to visit. The annual Art in the garden is always of interest and the art exhibitions are always interesting too and an opportunity to purchase great works by local artists. Pay the gardens a visit and you'll not be disappointed.
  • Love it here! I can arrive stressed and always leave happy, refreshed and ready to take on the world. Staff here are fantastic. I'm so pleased we brought joint membership in August, visit most days. There is always something new to see. Great for kids too with playground, tree house and if course nature!
  • Sir Harold Hillier Gardens is a wonderful place to go for the day if you want a peaceful day out. The gardens are so large that often you can walk around and not see another person. A lovely selection of plants and trees, a beautiful place.
  • Excellent way to relax and unwind while walking around the extensive gardens. The vistas change weekly from spring to winter. You can easily stay all day. If you like visiting this garden and intend to revisit then it might be worth becoming a member. You then get unlimited visits at no extra cost plus free unlimited entry to some other gardens such as Kew.
  • My husband and I went yesterday and were amazed by the beautiful gardens and the lovely unusual art exhibits dotted around the plants. Everything was immaculate, very well kept,. We have visited many gardens over the years but these are honestly the best we have ever seen. We will definitely be visiting again in the autumn to see the maples and in spring for the azaleas and magnolias. I think we should get an annual pass!
