Exbury Gardens

Exbury SO45 1AZ

These superb gardens were laid out by one of the immensely wealthy Rothschilds, Lionel Nathan, in the 1920s. Covering around 100 hectares alongside the Beaulieu River, the gardens are famed for their azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. There are formal areas of great beauty, though there are also wild areas and some lovely walks. A steam railway chugs round the grounds (£4 extra) while special days and events take place throughout the year. There is also a restaurant, café and shop.
