Wakehurst is a beautiful botanic garden in West Sussex, managed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Wakehurst sits in an Area of Outstanding Beauty on the High Weald, with hills and shady gullies, sandstone outcrops embedded with twisted tree roots and rare lichens, mosses and ferns as well as sunny meadowland. Managed gardens as well as beautiful botanic plant collections around our Elizabethan Mansion give way to ancient and coppiced woodland and swathes of wild flowers.

Enjoy a gourmet coffee or afternoon tea in one of our restaurants or cafés, learn about the essential conservation work of Kew's Millennium Seed Bank, let the kids run wild in our natural play spaces including new log trail (Treetrunk Trek), experience wildlife all around or attend one of our fabulous seasonal family friendly events or school holiday activities.

There’s always plenty to see and do in and around our 535 acre and ever-changing landscape to make each visit stimulating, whatever the season.
