What's on

We've got lots of events coming up that will help you make the most of autumn.

Look out for guided walks and exclusive house tours as well as a self-guided Hallowe'en themed trail around the gardens.

Family fun

There's plenty of fun things for families to do together such as follow one of our seasonal trails or solve the giant maze.

You can also hunt for bugs, build a den and more as you complete our list of  50 things to do before you're 11 ¾.

South Terrace slide

As work continues to save the South Terrace, we’ve temporarily installed a giant slide on the scaffolding. Open 11am - 3.30pm daily until Sunday 2 November (subject to slide and weather conditions). Suggested donation £2.

Breathtaking views

Perched high on the cliffs, our gardens have always been famous for their stunning views.

Our 'views' downloadable walk will take you around the gardens and highlights some of the striking vistas on offer.

Looking ahead

Planning ahead to Christmas? We've got lots coming up to help you get in the festive spirit.

Join in one of our seasonal workshops, enjoy a delicious Christmas lunch in our café or treat yourself in our shop.

First World War

Within months of the start of the First World War, a hospital was opened in the grounds here to treat injured soldiers.

One hundred years on, the memorial garden in which those that died were buried can still be visited today.
