Highdown Gardens

Highdown Gardens is a unique chalk garden nested in the South Downs National Park and overlooking the sea. The gardens are home to a National Plant Collection, a ‘living library’ of rare plants and trees adapted to live on chalk throughout the year. Many of the plants are from the original collection started by keen horticulturist Sir Frederick Stern in 1909. Over the years, the gardens had royal & state visits with the likes of Queen Mary and David Lloyd George.

Today, Highdown’s work is focused on preservation, education and recreation, providing a lasting legacy for future generations.
