Plan your visit

There is so much to see and do at Exbury.

Whether you're including Exbury in your holiday to the New Forest, arranging a day trip with the family or planning a coach trip with a group, Exbury can accomodate all types of visitors. 

Located in the heart of the New Forest, travelling to Exbury can be both frustrating (M27) and charming (A326) and there are an abundance of beautiful spots to stay. Check out our insider knowledge on how to get here and where to find unique accomodation.

We also have a number of special events and exhibitions to entertain all ages that are included in the normal ticket price.

Please note that Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway closes for annual maintenance work over the Winter and is not open to the public at present. We will however open for special events on some weekends during November and December 2018, such as the Postal Express and traditional Family Christmas Events. The gardens and railway will reopen to the public on Monday 23rd March 2019.
