Established in 1953 by the distinguished plantsman Sir Harold Hillier, the magnificent collection of over 42,000 plants from temperate regions around the world grow in a variety of superb themed landscapes set over 180-acres of rolling Hampshire countryside.

Ten Beautiful Gardens to Visit While it's Still Winter by Veronica Peerless

"The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens look good all year round, but the Winter Garden, said to be the largest in Europe, is renowned worldwide. It contains more than 650 plants that are at their best between November and March – yes, there really are that many! A wander around the large beds and borders will inspire you to plant more winter beauties in your own garden."

Ten of the Best Autumnal Gardens by Veronica Peerless

"The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens pull off that rare feat of looking brilliant all year round. The gardens started life as an arboretum and the gardens have the highest number of ‘champion trees’ in Britain, many of which give fantastic autumn colour. There’s plenty to see around the gardens too, from shrubs such as oak-leafed hydrangeas, rare enkianthus and lipstick-pink nerines."
