Something for everyone at Hare Hill

A family out for a walk in the parkland

We want to make sure everyone enjoys their visit to Hare Hill, no matter how much time they spend here. Your first stop will be at the Welcome Centre, where you will receive a warm welcome from our friendly team.

Make your way down to the garden, where you can visit the Information Room, browse the pre-loved bookshop, and learn more about the history of Hare Hill.

Our glorious walled garden is the ideal place to relax. Take a leisurely stroll around the white borders in summer and early autumn, and enjoy the many varieties of plants and fragrances. Take a seat on one of the benches, enjoy a book and listen to the birdsong,  

For families, explore the new natural play area which is a haven for kids and and enjoy the changing colours on an autumn ramble through the wooded garden.

Plant lovers will want to explore every corner of the garden. There’s plenty to admire in Colonel Brocklehurst’s pride and joy – from rare and exotic rhododendrons and azaleas in spring, to more recent additions such as unusual  foxgloves, bulbs and of course the perennial summer borders in the walled garden.  Bird watchers can head for the bird hide and spot blue tits, tree creepers and even a woodpecker from time to time.

For the comfort and safety of all visitors, ball games, bicycles and scooters are not permitted in the garden. Dogs are not allowed anywhere in the garden, apart from assistance dogs. Last entry to the garden is 4.30pm.
