Visiting this spring 

Please make sure you check web pages for individual places before you travel, to see where is open and where you may need to book, as well as the most up to date information about visiting.

In Sussex, our gardens and parks and countryside sites remain open for local people to exercise. Shops, houses and other indoor areas are closed, and cafés are takeaway only. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local.

The blossom and flower filled wall garden


As spring arrives Nymans’ atmospheric wall garden is brim full of lavish displays of flowers, from drifts of bright yellow daffodils, to masses of frothy blossom, magnolias and camellias. All around the garden enjoy splashes of colour with rhododendrons and azaleas in full flower from April. Discover bluebells in the woodland and wild garden and stroll along pathways between the rediscovered Edwardian spring borders.
