Exbury Gardens is a charitable company registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (registration number 801349).
The gardens were created by Lionel de Rothschild in 1919 and are still lovingly managed by the family today.
We offer woodland walks, world famous displays of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias, art and sculpture exhibitions and since 2001 a miniature steam railway that follows a scenic route through parts of the gardens previously inaccessible to the public.
Presently Exbury Gardens maintains an ongoing propagation and development programme and has established a detailed database of the plants held.
Please note that Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway closes for annual maintenance work over the Winter and is not open to the public at present. We will however open for special events on some weekends during November and December 2018, such as the Postal Express and traditional Family Christmas Events. The gardens and railway will reopen to the public on Monday 23rd March 2019.
