Welcome to Highdown Gardens - a hidden gem


Highdown Gardens are nestled on the South Downs situated between Ferring and Goring

These stunningly beautiful chalk gardens on Downland countryside, overlooking the sea, are a tranquil haven for all to enjoy. The gardens are home to The National Plant Collection of the Plant Introductions of Sir Fredrick Stern - a unique collection of plants and trees, with many unusual plants to be discovered all year round.
