More than 100 years in the making, Exbury's glorious gardens, designed and curated by the de Rothschild family, have the power to delight and inspire in equal measure.
This spectacular collection of landscaped woodland, herbaceous, contemporary, formal and wildflower gardens provide an ever-changing palette of colour that will entice you back to witness the seasons unfold.
Exbury Through the Seasons
Exbury is renowned for spring colour, set apart from other gardens by our world-famous collection of rhododendrons and azaleas. These stunning shrubs are at their height in May, lining the paths with elegant flowers. Spring also sees a spectacular display of camellias and magnolias, as well as hundreds of thousands of spring bulbs in Daffodil Meadow and the River of Gold.
Our 200 acres transform into a shady sanctuary of tranquility during summertime. In particular, the Iris, Herbaceous, Sundial and Centenary Gardens bloom at this time of year with herbaceous perennials and exotic flowers.
During the colder months, expert planting showcases the vibrant red and orange of our fiery acers and National Plant Collection of nyssa trees, amidst a vibrant backdrop of dogwoods and majestic oak trees.
