Attraction Information

Sir Harold Hillier Gardens is world famous, with plenty of outstanding features set in 180 acres that provide a wonderful environment for families, and free entry for the kids!

There are exciting play features that are suitable for all abilities, such as bamboo tunnels with a wobbly bridge, a fabulous tree house and a relaxing flying carpet swing! Kids can discover the natural environment in a fun way at the Education Garden, plus a number of seasonal self-guided activity trails are available. Geocaching (an outdoor treasure hunting game) is also available, so check online for details of this before you visit.

There are so many amazing areas to discover, such as the Bog Garden, the Gurkha Memorial Garden, Magnolia Avenue, Acer Valley, Hydrangea Walk, the Meadow, and Himalayan Valley to name a few! There is also a Spring Walk, a Winter Garden, plus Ampfield Wood Valley, which sometimes contain delightful Saddleback pigs to help clear the scrubland!

There is always something to interest you, whatever time of year you visit, with over 42,000 plants from around the world to discover, a welcoming restaurant and tearoom, plus a number of events and bonus exhibitions throughout the year. Yay!
