Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway - a magical place in the New Forest National Park.

The Gardens are a spectacular 200 acre (100 hectare) site, world-famous for the Rothschild Collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and rare trees and shrubs. This earthly paradise offers a riot of colour in spring, an oasis of tranquility in summer followed by a splendid show as the leaves change in the autumn.

Capture Exbury’s hidden beauty and escape the cares of the world as you explore a myriad of pathways. Let the train take the strain on a 20 minute journey or ride a chauffeur driven buggy to tour the Gardens. In 2014 the Gardens were awarded the prestigious accolade of 'Camellia Garden of Excellence' in recognition of the extensive collections in the Old and New Camellia Walks and the Gilbury Lane Garden.

Mr Eddy’s Tea Rooms and Gift Shop are open every day of our opening season.

The Steam Railway runs every day the Gardens are open, with trains departing Exbury Central Station at regular intervals.Round-trip journey time is approx. 20 mins. Gardens and Train Combination Tickets may be purchased at the Gardens entrance.
