Did you know that Exbury Gardens is a charity? If you are a UK taxpayer and make a donation that is 10% more than the entre fee the government will give us an extra 25% on top of your donation. It's called a Gift Aid visit and it makes a massive difference to charities like Exbury Gardens. Your contribution will support the charitable objectives of the Gardens, including the advancement of horticultural science, knowledge and learning, and the maintenance, improvement, development and preservation of the Gardens for public benefit. As you can see, a little more really can mean a lot to us.
If you do not wish to make this 10% voluntary donation please advise our gate staff accordingly and ask for a standard admission.
Standard admission prices excluding donation are: Adult £10.00, Child £2.00, Family £23.00, Railways £4.50 extra per person.
