The New River Walk is a soothing trail that stretches nearly half a mile at the eastern end of our 200-acre New Forest garden through tranquil coastal woodland, which is filled with mature oaks, field maples, yews and hazels. Interpretation boards highlight interesting facts and historical anecdotes about iconic native trees. Plus sections of the boardwalk lead to viewing points where visitors can watch birds and wildlife on the estuary’s tidal flats.
To celebrate the opening of our New River Walk, we are launching a series of informative videos with UK leading tree expert, Tony Kirkham, Head of Arboretum at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This introductory film includes a discussion between Tony Kirkham and Exbury Director and recent CBE-awardee, Marcus Agius. To watch, click on the video below.
Every Friday in July 2021 a new video all about Exbury's New River Walk - including bird wildlife, facts about oak trees, and the importance of native woodland - will be released on our YouTube Channel. Click the button below to subscribe and be notified when these videos go live!
We hope you enjoy learning about our New River Walk over the next few weeks and get the chance to visit this great garden feature soon.
