A magical place in the New Forest National Park.

The Gardens are a spectacular 200 acre (80 hectare) site, world-famous for the Rothschild Collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, rare trees and shrubs. 

Exbury Gardens were the inspiration of Lionel Nathan de Rothschild. It was his vision, his dedication and his resources which have created one of the finest woodland gardens in the country.

A visitor once described Exbury as “Heaven with the gates open.” It is a garden for people young and old, horticulturalist or enthusiastic gardener, or just a lover of beautiful places. From botanical rarities to masses of spectacular colour, there is something for all to enjoy – a place to escape from the cares of the world.

This earthly paradise offers a riot of colour in spring, an oasis of tranquillity in summer followed by a splendid show as the leaves change in the autumn.

Capture Exbury’s hidden beauty and escape the cares of the world as you explore a myriad of pathways. A 20 minute trip aboard the 12 ¼ inch gauge Steam Railway is sure to delight visitors of all ages.

Children will love the adventure play area and looking at all the wildlife that we have!

Top the day off with an ice-cream or tea and cake in Mr Eddy’s Tea Rooms.
