Exbury Gardens is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019 and to celebrate we're opening three new areas:

Centenary Garden - a never-before-seen 'secret' garden

Exbury history exhibition - showcasing Rothschild archive photographs

Stream of spring bulbs - 100,000 spring bulbs creating a winding path of flowers

‘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.’
