Exbury Gardens is a charitable company registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. (Registration number 801349). The gardens offer woodland walks and world famous displays of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. Art and sculpture exhibitions are regularly held. Since 2001 there has been a miniature steam railway which follows a scenic route through parts of the gardens previously inaccessible to the public.
Presently Exbury Gardens maintains an ongoing propagation and development programme for the gardens and has established a detailed database of the plants held including its National Collection of Nyssa and Oxydendrum. The charity also supports ongoing plant hunting expeditions and links with China in the continued development of horticultural knowledge and science.
