A visit to the 360-acre Hyde Hall estate is unforgettable in any season and allows visitors to immerse themselves in nature.

Hyde Hall is in an area of Essex that has very low rainfall, and this factor, combined with the soil conditions and exposed nature of the site, makes it a challenging area for gardening.

A visit will show that by choosing the right plants for the right places and by working with the prevailing conditions, it is possible to create a garden of beauty.

RHS Garden Hyde Hall is the perfect place for families to discover the great outdoors. It offers a great day out for all the family with plenty to keep the children occupied.

There's plenty to do at Hyde Hall all year round. Be sure to make the Information Centre your first port of call where you will find ‘I-spy’ spotter sheets and themed trails that take you on a journey of discovery around the garden.

With big open skies Hyde Hall is the perfect place for kite flying. Children who bring their own kite (during school holidays & weekends) will be admitted free.

We also have a small play area situated near to the Visitor Centre.

Open: March – Oct: 10am-6pm & Nov – Feb: 10am-4pm
Last admission is one hour before closing.
