Where and what is the Garden of England?

Map of the Garden of EnglandThe Garden of England is one of the greenest, most inspiring and most surprising parts of England. Just 25 miles from the hustle and bustle of London, the peace and green of this area seems a world away. Located in the South East it is often associated solely with the county of Kent, but in reality straddles the borders of the counties of west Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex.

Many areas of England including Yorkshire and others have tried to stake a claim to the title ‘The Garden of England’, but there can be no denying that the green, rolling landscape of this corner of the South East with its miles of woodlands, fields and farmland brimming with orchards and hop gardens, dotted with pretty villages is the true Garden of England. The area’s reputation for a variety of wonderful traditional and formal gardens open to the public – more than any other part of England - only adds to its entitlement to the title 'The Garden of England'.

Come and discover its beauty.
