30th April 2020: Virtual Tour of Highdown Gardens

The short video below offers a virtual Tour of Highdown Gardens, the borough's beautiful chalk gardens on Downland countryside, overlooking the sea, which are bursting with life and are a spectrum of colour.

Although we're currently not able to see the rare plants first hand, our gardeners have been snapping away to ensure we have a wonderful collection of springtime photos to share with you at this difficult time.

Put on your headphones, find a quiet place and take a few minutes to escape with our virtual tour ...
