Sir Harold Hillier Gardens


Over 100 sculptures set over 180 acres. Scamper along wooden bridges keeping your eyes peeled for giant dragonflies. Mind you don’t get bogged down in the Bog Garden or lost in the giant bamboo tunnels. Heed what you find in the Heather Garden, Himalayan Valley or Hydrangea Walk. Remember to look up; you’ll be surprised by what sparkles high up in the branches or what you see from a treehouse.
