‘We recently had some friends from London to visit and were looking for something to entertain their 3 and our 2 young children for the day. We decided to give Exbury Gardens a try and I thought I would just write to thank your team so much for such a wonderful day. There was something for all ages and when the children are happy so are us parents! We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the food was far superior to other local attractions so compliments to the chef. We told the children that if they ate all their lunch they could have a ride on the train and I haven’t seen 5 kids eat with so much enthusiasm for a very long time! Walking through the gardens was beautiful with lots of little pathways to explore. The children could not believe the size of the fish in the lake and it was a thoroughly fantastic day out for all ages. 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 and Beaulieu was only 5 minutes away so we went to see the donkeys on the way home! We will definitely be a regular visitor from now on.’
