We would like to thank all Friends of Exbury members for their continued support during these unprecedented times.

Please note that anyone with a valid Friends of Exbury membership when we closed on 22nd March 2020 were given a 3-month extension to their membership, to take account of the 10 weeks we were closed to visitors due to COVID-19 lockdown. This will be added to your membership automatically and you can continue to use your membership card during the extension period. Please see the table below for your new membership expiration date.


‘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’
