Highdown Gallery: Exhibition, meeting & workshop space in the gardens

Imagine your work displayed in the heart of Highdown Gardens.

We are now offering the opportunity to showcase your work or host a meeting in our unique location nestled on the South Downs. Our visitor centre is getting a makeover to become a more versatile venue ready for hire from Spring 2024. It’s ideal for art or craft exhibitions and any accompanying workshops and talks.
