West Dean Gardens

Nestled at the foot of the South Downs, West Dean Gardens is one of the greatest restored gardens open to the public today Walled Garden Pear Arch © West Dean Gardens

Join us on a day trip to West Dean Gardens, near Chichester. Creatively inspired by its rich heritage and setting, West Dean is brimming with features to enjoy:

 

Edwardian Pergola

The impressive 100 metre long pergola was designed by Harold Peto and needed extensive restoration following the 1987 storm. It is host to many varieties of magnolia, clematis, rose and honeysuckle.

 

Walled Kitchen Garden

An inspiring area within the Walled Garden, heaving with fruit, vegetables and cutting flowers. Beautifully laid out in a classic Victorian design.

 

Sunken Garden

The beautiful Sunken Garden at West Dean reopened in the Spring of 2014 after a six year period of restoration and in July 2014 was awarded a Sussex Heritage Trust Award - Landscape & Gardens category.

 

Fruit Collections

West Dean Garden's celebrated apple collection is housed within and around the Walled Garden. There are over 100 varieties of apple and 45 varieties of pear, including heritage varieties with links to West Sussex, many of them trained into exquisite traditional shapes.
