Open Gardens Day

Our popular Open Gardens days return this September.

Date: Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 September

Our popular Open Gardens days return this September. While away the hours in our 12 acres of gardens. Take a leisurely stroll around the lake, enjoy the flowers and you can even treat yourself to lunch in one of our restaurants.

You can also visit our art gallery where you can see our Festival exhibitions by Maggi Hambling and Tom Hammick, and Cover to Cover, which celebrates 70 years of the Festival Programme book.

Some love for our Gardens:

‘The gardens incorporate manicured lawns (inaccessible to the neighbouring sheep thanks to the ha-ha), vibrant borders, a kitchen garden, a formal rose garden and a wilder area featuring a lake and meadows beyond. The Glyndebourne gardens are a joy to explore with ‘jaw-dropping views of its farmland and the South Downs beyond.’- The Daily Telegraph

‘I love to walk around the lake – there are always new wild flowers and wildlife; the occasional kingfisher, calling buzzards, woodpeckers and carp playing in the lake – to deflect the cares of everyday life.’ – Gus Christie, Executive Chairman
