We visited Borde Hill Garden several times. A peaceful garden where you can enjoy the range of colors. Ideal for spending the day with family. the Italian garden is very restful and worth visiting. There are many interesting plants including few unusual ones.

A charming, peaceful garden with mixture of formal gardens with woodland and lakeside walks. Lots of colour even at end of September. New children's play area being developed for 2019. Very child-friendly and staff in reception and cafe welcoming and helpful, and food good value.

Enjoyed seeing the range of colours and planting; still looking good at the end of summer. Visit was made more interesting by picking up a leaflet from the gift shop for the sculpture trail, then finding them all.
