    Borde Hill is a beautiful Grade II* English Heritage garden set in 200 acres of parkland with magnificent views across the Ouse Valley viaduct. Created by Colonel Stephenson Robert Clarke from seeds gathered by the great plant hunters of the early 1900s, it is renowned for its rare shrubs and trees.

    The Garden includes distinctive living ‘rooms’, each with its own unique style, from secret, sub-tropical dells to the sophisticated Rose and Italian gardens. An abundance of spring-flowers gives way to exuberant summer borders of roses and herbaceous plants followed by mellow autumn colour. Nestled at the heart of the 35-acre garden and woodland is the Elizabethan house, which is open to pre-booked groups.

    Open March to October, daily 10am -5pm weekdays and 10am-6pm weekends.

    Regular events for all the family are held from March to October, and with gentle slopes offering easy access, picnic areas, a playground and cafes, this is the perfect place for everyone to enjoy a great day out.

    Restricted Mobility Access:
    The majority of the formal Garden is accessible to those with restricted mobility. Gentle slopes with hard surfaces allow wheelchair access. There are also plenty of benches for relaxing and taking in the sights. A restricted mobility map is available. Wheelchairs available for use (no charge, please telephone to reserve).

    Groups:
    Pre-booked groups are welcome and receive a discounted price. Tailor your visit with a Garden tour with the Head Gardener, or a tour of the Elizabethan Mansion House (or both). Catering options are available and can be tailored to suit your group's requirements.

    Shop, plant sales, cafe, tea house and restaurant.
