One Garden Brighton
Brighton & Hove
One Garden Brighton is a secret revealed. Stanmer Park’s walled garden was built over 200 years ago. Situated in BN1, Stanmer Park is Brighton’s largest park and the gateway to the South Downs. Despite Stanmer’s rich history, the walled garden has never been open to the public. The park as a whole is a rare surviving example of a complete eighteenth-century estate landscape and is being regenerated through the design of Eden project architect, Dominic Cole with a focus on the historic gardening methods through his visions which are being brought to life by the team from Plumpton College and One Garden Brighton.
Rediscovered, reinvented – in 2017 Plumpton College, Brighton and Hove City Council and the Heritage Fund embarked on a collective journey to transform Stanmer Park into a tourist destination, community space, and educational facilities for Plumpton College horticulture students.
The site will be home to One Kitchen, a destination café with high-quality service and products. At the heart of the garden, our Kitchen will be a destination eatery and meeting place, serving high-quality food inspired by the fruit, vegetables and, herbs from local producers, and the garden itself.
One Market, is a large Market area that will champion many local producers. It will stock a range of baked goods, deli items and gifts as well as Plumpton Estate wine and cheese a shop with Plumpton Estate products, focusing on local produce, sustainability and good quality, British produce. Plus, you can find a selection of plants, as seen in the garden, including some unusual specimens.
One Garden Brighton has something different every day for everyone in Brighton and beyond.
We will be welcoming visitors, volunteers and students to rediscover this historic place from Spring 2021.
Due to Covid-19, we are currently unable to confirm maximum group booking numbers. We hope to open One Garden Brighton to the public soon, including future groups. Keep up to date on our website and social media channels for more information.
