Wakehurst Place image

Wakehurst Place; beautiful botanic gardens located in West Sussex and managed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Set in 465 acres of country estate, Wakehurst boasts ornamental gardens, temperate woodlands, a nature reserve, and an Elizabethan mansion.

Surround yourself in the natural beauty of the area, enjoy afternoon tea or learn about the essential conservation work of Kew's Millennium Seed Bank. With natural play areas for the children, and wildlife all around, there is something to keep everyone entertained.

There is always plenty to see at Wakehurst, from the blossom and blooms of the formal gardens to the diverse animal and plant life of the Loder Valley Nature Reserve.

Stop for a bite to eat in the Seed Café with its panoramic views and open-air terrace, or visit The Stables, a licensed, self-service family restaurant, where you can enjoy lunch or afternoon tea.
