A real inspiration. The gardens are not so big, but designed in a way that makes it feel bigger. Always interesting displays, a real inspiration for your own garden as nothing too fancy. Also, wonderful play in July.

This is a lovely place to unwind. There are several different area to the gardens from an intimate, quiet garden behind the bungalow to formal beds, with an area formed from an old quarry. The wall of the quarry rises above you with trailing roses and others plants cascading down it. I wondered if the hanging gardens of Babylon were anything like it. There are numerous seats for tired legs to take a rest.
A pleasant place to spend an hour or two.

For my niece's 2nd birthday, we held a family picnic in Highdown Gardens. It was a beautiful sunny June afternoon and the setting could not have been more perfect. We were in a secluded part of the gardens, that are surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers and a pond

A beautiful garden set in a chalk hillside. It has free entry, but donations are appreciated.
It is worth visiting any time of year, but spring is exceptional. A vast array of plants, and two ponds. A peaceful garden with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view and birdsong, small wooded walkways, a rose garden and open areas.
There is also a lovely tearoom nearby, and a carvery at Highdown Hotel.
For a longer walk you can continue up and over Highdown Hill.
