Hillier's arboretum is both beautiful all the year round and ideal for all the family. Now has tasteful attractions that fit in unobtrusively for the children, and also educational fun for children to explore and learn. The gardens also have inspirational planting for all seasons....More

Came here as a volunteer on my son's school trip. The staff were amazingly attentive and engaging with the children. The venue is beautifully clean with amazing gardens. Will definitely be back with my family to explore in the summer and enjoy the tea rooms

A regular venue with the Winter Garden looking colourful with hellebores, cyclamen and flowering bulbs in abundance. The lake was frozen over but still managed to reflect the surrounding trees and shrubs. Always a great walk around.
