The Gardens are a spectacular 200 acre (100 hectare) site, world-famous for the Rothschild Collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and rare trees and shrubs. This earthly paradise offers a riot of colour in spring, an oasis of tranquility in summer followed by a splendid show as the leaves change in the autumn. Capture Exbury's hidden beauty and escape the cares of the world as you explore a myriad of pathways. Let the train take the strain on a 20 minute journey or ride a chauffeur driven buggy to tour the Gardens. In December 2011 the Gardens were awarded the prestigious Hudson's Heritage UK "Best Garden" award.

Mr Eddy's Tea Rooms and Gift Shop are open every day of our opening season.

The Steam Railway runs every day the Gardens are open, with trains departing Exbury Central Station at regular intervals. Please visit our website to find out more about the Steam Railway and view the Timetables. View our walk-through exhibition in the Engine Shed, "A Dream Come True", with video, info panels, railway posters and memorabilia.
