We have been to Highdown Gardens as a family and as a couple. It really is so beautiful and tranquil. A lovely day out for the kids to discover new things, but equally for the adults to have a lovely relaxing day. In the summer especially this is one of our favourite spots. Away from any main roads you feel... More

Good food,not over priced, I just hope the waitress washes her hand, every time she go back behind the counter, because she pets the dogs that the walker have with them. It just put me off eating in there, hands on rain soaked dog fur, then on to my plate of food

These gardens are absolutely lovely at any time of the year. We have been on our own for a quiet stroll and taken our grandchildren who love going there, they especially like the ponds.

This is an excellent, well managed gardens with plenty of variety throughout the year and it also free. If you are feeling fit you can combine a visit with a walk on Highdown and finish with a coffee in the cafe next door.

Highdown Gardens has long been a favourite place to visit, although it's a shame we can no longer take our dog in with us. The flowers are glorious and it's full of intersting nooks and crannies to explore. This is no reflection on the venue, but I wish parents would ensure their children do not stomp on the flowers as... More

A nice half day out for all, not just gardeners, Set in a disused chalk pit it shows just what can be grown in alkaline conditions. A lesson in persistence for all.

I love wandering round the gardens on my own and with friends. A lovely place to go and brood over things or just clear your head. Nice to wander up the highdown hill first then round the gardens afterwards. Peaceful and pretty.
