Sir Harold Hillier Gardens is a definite must-do in the Southampton area and for those keen gardeners or just landscaping admirers, it will be a great afternoon wandering around these extensive gardens. Lots of interesting sections are displayed along a good walk and provides something different behind each corner. Interesting sculptures soon appear and little activities for the kids bring something a little bit different than most other gardens.
It is a little pricey so make sure you investigate membership as this was pointed out to us on our visit. It's also worth noting that SHHG isn't a National Trust property so you won't be able to benefit from any NT membership. It was approx. £8 per adult but there is free parking.
Two lovely cafe/restaurants are on site for coffees and light lunches but you're probably best brining a picnic on a sunny day to really make the most of the space and photogenic surroundings.
We'll be back for sure!
