Things to see and do at Woolbeding Gardens

The sundial in the parterre garden at Woolbeding Gardens, West Sussex.

The 26-acre garden is the creation of Mr Simon Sainsbury and Stewart Grimshaw. With the help of notable garden designers Lanning Roper in the 1980s and the Bannermans in the late 1990s, Woolbeding has developed into the modern masterpiece you see today.

Discover the garden rooms

Each room has a different colour theme from vibrant reds to pastel pinks; explore the vegetable garden, well garden, fountain garden, herb garden, pool and orangery.

Find the follies

The Tulip Folly is surrounded by glorious views and plenty of space for families to picnic in and enjoy. There are more follies to discover in each area of the garden.

Explore the landscape garden

Wander through the ruined abbey and across the Chinese-style bridge to discover the gothic summer house, River God grotto and much more.

Plant collection

We’re constantly experimenting and planting new flowers; some are rare and some are not but there’s always something new to see.

Just ask us

Woolbeding is a personal, private garden so you won’t find any plant labels. But you’ll always find one of the garden team on hand to answer any questions.
