The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum is lovely in every season.
As Spring arrives the gardens burst with an explosion of colour. There is much to see along Spring Walk with Camellias, Rhododendrons and Magnolias.
But also consider visiting in the winter, in January the Winter Garden is stunning with, daphne, witch hazel, dogwood, grasses and other colouful plants.
The Hillier Gardens cover 180 acres, 12000 different species and 40000 plants. 11 National collections. Herbaceous and bog gardens. You will need the best part of a day here.
This is one of our favourite Spring Gardens and if you do not live nearby it is worth staying locally as we also like Furzey Gardens on the edge of the new Forest.
Disabled access. Jermyns House Tea Rooms and lawns. No dogs except guide dogs and hearing dogs.
Sir Harold Hillier Gardens open weekdays 10.30am - 6pm. Superb new visitor centre including restaurant and shop. Weekends and bank holidays 9.30am - 6pm. Disabled access.
