Once owned by the 18th-century naturalist Gilbert White, this garden has been restored to include elements he described in his writings. Flower gardens, a vegetable plot, herb garden and orchards have been reinstated using plants of his time. Interesting historic features include a fruit wall, sundial and an oak tree planted in 1730. Wildflowers adorn the meadow, while the pond is home to three species of newts.


Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
