These beautiful gardens were established in the 1920s by Lionel de Rothschild, about 3 miles from Beaulieu. Containing a small steam train which takes about 20 minutes around the north end of the gardens and including a tunnel, bridge and viaduct. The gardens are recognised for their Magnolias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons. The sight can best be enjoyed in the spring time when the buds are flowering. If you don’t feel like the walk you can enjoy a chauffeur driven buggy tour which lasts about 30mins at a very small cost. When you have finished the day you can enjoy some lunch in the cafe and visit the gift shop. The main pathways in the Garden are suitable for disabled visitors.
