Closed Tuesday 25th August

Gardens and railway closure Tuesday 25th August

Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway will be closed on Tuesday 25th August due to extreme weather conditions forecast across the south coast.

This is very unfortunate considering we had to close just a few days ago for the same reason. However, we take our visitors safety very seriously and just can't risk any accidents. High winds can be very dangerous in our woodland gardens and so we have made the difficult decision not to open tomorrow. We plan to open on Wednesday, provided the weather forecast is safe enough to do so.

If you have booked tickets for Tuesday 25th August please call 02380 891203 to re-book for a later date, or arrange for a refund. For those of you that have booked for the Make a mini garden event, please call the above number to re-book for the reaaranged date of Thursday 27th August or to arrange a refund.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

The Exbury Team

‘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.’
