Borde Hill is a 2,000-acre Estate in West Sussex located just 30 minutes from Brighton, which has been owned by the Stephenson Clarke family for over 130 years. At the heart lies a Grade II listed Elizabethan Mansion House set within a stunningly beautiful and botanically rich landscaped Garden and traditional Parkland, open to visitors annually from February to December.

Listed by English Heritage as being of Grade II* historic importance and set in 383 acres of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the High Weald, Borde Hill is of national botanical importance. The Garden is renowned for its impressive collection of rare and exotic trees, shrubs, and plants, many grown from seeds collected by Colonel Stephenson R Clarke, a horticultural pioneer who sponsored plant hunting trips around the world. The result is one of the rarest collections of privately owned champion trees in the UK and one of the only places you can see plants from all four corners of the world. Planted as a series of outdoor ‘garden rooms’, each with its own unique style and character, highlights include the Azalea Ring, the tranquil Italian Garden, stunning Rose Garden, perennial borders and sub-tropical dells.

Experience ‘joyous balance’ and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Garden. From woodland walks to Borde Hill Garden Festival, specialist plant fairs, wellbeing workshops, live music and family activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy throughout the season. Dogs on leads are warmly welcomed.  01444 450326 Email:
