Exbury Gardens aims to enable visitors with disabilities and additional mobility needs to use and enjoy the gardens, railway and facilities.

We at Exbury have made a considered attempt at ensuring that most of our facilities (including the railway) are accessible for all. Our main paths are suitable for wheelchairs and special maps that identify these routes are obtainable at the Visitor Entrance. Motorised scooters are welcomed at Exbury, however users are reminded to keep to the recommended pathways.

Carers are admitted free of charge into Exbury Gardens on a one-to-one basis when accompanying a caree who pays the normal admission rate. Please note that proof of disability and/or registered carer status may be requested.

Exbury provides a limited number of non-motorized wheelchairs free of charge. These are available on a first come first served basis from the Visitor Entrance.

Our buggy service is designed to enable visitors with limited mobility to access the main areas of interest within Exbury Gardens. The chauffeur-driven buggy tours cost £5.50 per person and follows a set route around the gardens.

Buggies operate as a timetabled service on a first-come, first-served basis and visitors should be advised that queues can be expected, particularly in May and June.

‘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.’
