What's New?

Our Gardens are now closed for January, we hope you enjoyed visiting in 2016 and are already looking forward to opening again on 3rd February. If you're keen to enjoy the Gardens more this year then why not become a Gardens Friend, with annual membership starting from £33.

Snowdrop Open Day - Sunday 5 February

Come and explore the gardens and see the first signs of spring when we open as part of the NGS Snowdrop Festival. This is a fantastic cause and we are delighted to help support the National Gardens Scheme, who help raise money for a variety of charities. Read more about the Snowdrop Open Day.

Don't forget you can still catch up on our our latest blog from Sarah Wain who in December writes about the importance of our Glasshouses, their history and management - it was a busy year with their recent restoration.

Photographic Exhibition

Come and see our photographic exhibition, as part of our 25 years of glorious gardening celebrations this year. The exhibiton includes images showing the gardens back in the early 1990s when our head gardeners Jim Buckland and Sarah Wain first started working at West Dean, the transformation is astounding! Entry to the exhibition is all included in the Gardens entry price. Read more about our West Dean Gardens photo exhibition.

To help mark the 25 years of glorious gardening our glasshouse appeal continues in which we hope to raise £40,000. Our nectarine and late vinery - glasshouse 25 - is in desperate need of renovation so please dig deep to help '25' survive for another 25 years and beyond.
