wonderful all-year round gardens

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.

Pity but when a chef comes out in disgusting dirty whites to me it says don't care. So we left without trying the food. Reasonable location and fair amount of parking but we won't be going back

Lovely walk enjoying the autumn colours. Although at the top of the hill, easy access and easy walk - would be good for people with restricted walking. Lots of parking. Vast mix of trees and plants.

Its well worth the visit. A hidden gem once seen never forgotten. They even have Shakespeare in the grounds during August - don't forget to take your picnick.
