The Savill Garden

Britain's finest ornamental garden, The Savill Garden is a true wonder. It's a garden for all seasons and a place of beauty and colour that's loved by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. Visitors can journey through 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland. Every garden has its own unique attraction, featuring a distinctive group of plants that introduce a fresh burst of vibrant colour throughout the seasons.

We strive to do our planting in a more enlightened way, so not only do we want our gardens to look great, we also want every plant we introduce to be perfectly matched to the wonderful environment around them. The Savill Garden features plants from all over the world and we are proud to continue Great Britain's strong tradition of plant hunting, Our Keeper of the Gardens Mark Flanagan follows in the footsteps of plant hunters like Ernest Wilson, searching the globe for interesting new additions to bring to The Savill Garden.

Exploring the Gardens

Sir Eric Savill first created his woodland garden in the 1930s. Since then, many others (under the watchful eyes of Kings and Queens) have been on a tireless quest to add their own expertise and creativity.

The Rose Garden, opened by H.M. the Queen in 2010, is a magnificent new addition. Designed by Andrew Wilson, visitors can wander the swirls of rose beds and enjoy the perfume at its best from a walkway that rises into the centre of the Rose Garden.
