Camellia Breakfast Walk

19th March 2016

Exbury was recognised by the International Camellia Society as a ‘Camellia Garden of Excellence’ in 2014.

Join the Head Gardener on a journey through Exbury’s wonderful woodland setting to see the best of the blooms from the Old and New Camellia Walks to the Gilbury Lane Garden. He will also explain the history of the gardens and walk you through the most spectacular parts.

The tour lasts two hours and then you will be taken for a delicious 3-course breakfast in Mr Eddy’s Tea Rooms. John Anderson, the Head Gardener, will join you for breakfast so you'll have a chance to talk to him and then you'll receive free entry to go back into the gardens to wander round at your leisure.

For this very exclusive chance to see the gardens without any other visitors in it, please phone 02380 891203 or email

Tickets are £30 per person (£27 for season ticket holders)

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
