Reasons for trip

Borde Hill garden surrounds an large Elizabethan tudor mansion which is occasionally open. There are beautiful garden rooms as you walk around with a stunning rose garden with 500 David Austin English roses in their prime, an Italian garden with a pool and panoramic views, beautiful summer herbaceaous borders and paradise walk to a hidden sub tropical round dell. In the Spring there is an azalea ring, and rhododendron garden, and because the Spring was so late this year some of the rhododendrons were still out on the woodland walk even in early July! Sir Ralph Stephenson Clarke named the Garden of Allah due to the tranquility of this area of rhododendrons with wildlife pond. A sculpure exhibition is currently on with wonderful kinetic organic forms by David Watkinson, so large sculptures of seeds, apples etc in the gardens, and more events in the summer. The gardens are historically important with many plants gathered worldwide in the 1900's, and you can even self cater in cottages or apartments on the site.

There is an adventure playground for children and restaurant and tea rooms for refreshments, and more walking in Warren Wood – lovely and cool on a hot day! In 2013 it is an RHS partner garden and unusually the garden is open to 6pm so you can visit later in an afternoon.
