The making of the centenary garden

Exclusive Friends of Exbury members event

Exclusive to Friends of Exbury - those of our loyal visitors that have purchased an annual membership* - this rare event will give some very special guests the chance to hear the inspirations behind the Centenary Garden from the designer themself.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
