Play Area

The children’s adventure play area was opened in 2014 and has been a firm favourite with our younger visitors ever since. Equipment includes an Explorer Tower, Sky Walk Trail, Bird’s Nest Swing, Play Hut  and ‘Pick-Up Sticks’  and younger visitors will enjoy our Play Hut, Bucket Swing and Horse Sit-In Springer.

There are picnic benches alongside so you can enjoy lunch and there are toilets and baby changing right next door.

‘We recently had some friends from London to visit and were looking for something to entertain our young children for the day. We decided to give Exbury Gardens a try and I thought it was wonderful. We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the food was far superior to other local attractions so compliments to the chef. Walking through the gardens was beautiful with lots of little pathways to explore. I have lived in the Romsey area for many years and always thought Exbury was a little out of the way but it only took me 20 minutes from the motorway. We will definitely be a regular visitor from now on.’
