Wakehurst Place gardens, in the beautiful High Weald of Sussex, is an outstanding botanic garden and conservation area, managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens. A mild, friendly climate, a high rainfall and moisture-retentive soils, allows many important groups of plants, unable to be grown successfully at Kew, to flourish here. In the woodlands, there are trees from the temperate zones of the world. The planting styles range from formal walled gardens by the Mansion, through expansive specimen beds, to waterside and bog gardens. The estate is home to no fewer than four National Collections - hypericums, skimmias, birches and southern beeches.

Review of Wakehurst Place
Posted on by Sheila DCustomer visited May 2017
Spent a lovely day visiting Wakehurst Place on 16th May 2017. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and we spent the whole day there and still did not manage to see everything. Next time we will book a B&B and spend more time. In this month of course the Rhododendron and Azalea were stunning. Amazing Acers and so much more. Colours to die for and so quiet you can hear all the beautiful birdsong and the ducks and geese, lots of little chicks too. Great restaurant so nothing lacking. 5 Stars!!
