Had a lovely afternoon here yesterday and it was sunny and warm. Enjoyed walking around the gardens, loved the flowers, especially the roses. Also had a robin come very close to me and saw a squirrel climb a tree. Then had a picnic lunch

I love walking round highdown with and without the kids. There are so many different parts of the garden to enjoy. Different plants to admire and even the wildlife around the pond. Parking can be difficult on sunny days or weekend's during the summer. Toilets...More

First time to Highdowns Gardens today. It is free to get in and park (donations welcome). Lots to see, and plenty of benches to sit on and relax. Seemed to be popular with families today - very sunny day.
