Borde Hill Garden

This half-term (28th May – 4th June) Borde Hill celebrates the wonders of nature and wildlife as children of all ages are invited to come and learn more about the world around them and take part in our discovery Nature Trail.

There will also be additional activities on selected days. Children can have their face-painted with a variety of ‘nature’ themes on Tuesday 30th May, whilst on Wednesday 31st May they can learn all about Bees from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Thursday 1st June is an activity day with additional traditional garden games for children including sack and wheelbarrow races and hoops. Friday 2nd June, sees a visit from the RSPB to talk about garden birds, whilst on Saturday 3rd June, visitors can meet and interact with some of the Parliament of Owls from Owls About Town.

In addition to the above, families can come and have a picnic, bring the dog (on a lead) or enjoy some refreshments from the Little Ritz café, Café Elvira or lunch at Jeremy’s.  Other more obvious ‘gems’ include rhododendrons, azaleas and many herbaceous plants which will be in bloom and the Sculpture Trail which recently opened. Placed all around the Garden, the stunning artworks suit a wide range of tastes, for all ages to enjoy and include nature and wildlife themes; from owls (Barn, Tawny, Charismatic and Erratic) to a Herring Gull, a Heron to a Flight of Avocets, Man’s Best Friend to A Herd of Deer…
