The Savill Garden
Type: Formal Garden
First created by Sir Eric Savill as his woodland garden in the 1930s, the latest addition, The Rose Garden, was opened by H.M. the Queen in 2010.
Known as Britain's finest ornamental garden, The Savill Garden is a garden for all seasons and a place of beauty and colour that's loved by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. With 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland, each garden has its own unique attraction, featuring a distinctive group of plants that introduce a fresh burst of vibrant colour throughout the seasons. Including seasonal gardens, New Zealand Garden, The Glades and Azalea walks, The Savill Garden features plants from all over the world. Keeper of the Gardens, Mark Flanagan follows in the footsteps of plant hunters like Ernest Wilson, searching the globe for interesting new additions.
The Savill Building
Opened in 2006, The Savill Building is a purpose built 21st century visitor centre, and Its undulating roof, shaped like a leaf, merges seamlessly with the tall trees surrounding it. From inside the vast cathedral-like central space you can see the awesome, apparently self-supporting, greenwood roof.
Leith’s at The Savill Garden provides a great place to enjoy freshly made sandwiches, snacks and delicious hot meals.
Children’s play area
The children's play area is only a short walk from The Savill Garden car park. Close to the picnic tables on Obelisk Lawn, as well as to the restaurant, baby changing and toilets.
There are plenty of things to keep toddlers and younger children entertained including a shipwreck, climbing frame, toddler swings and sandpit.
