Gruesome garden trail

The voodoo of Halloween has turned our Rock Garden into a spooky graveyard this half term. Do you dare to enter? Walk through cobweb arches, see monsters emerging from the ground and ghosts on zipwires.

Don't worry, everything in this trail is a Halloween prop and is suitable for most children, although parental discretion is advised for those of a sensitive nature.

Lo and behold, one Wisteria the witch''s spells has gone wrong and some of her favourite things have gone missing in the Gruesome garden trail. Can you help her find them? Pick up an activity booklet from the Visitor Entrance on your way in and help Wisteria find her missing items, you could even win a prize for doing so!

‘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.’
