Hillier Gardens, UK

I visited the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens on 24 September 2012. They are located near Romsey, on Jermyns Lane, approximately 5 miles from the M3 motorway and about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive from Heathrow Airport.

Hampshire County Council is the Trustee for the gardens. Admission in 2012 was 8.10 GBP and parking was free. The gardens were open daily in 2012 except Christmas Day and Boxing Day, from April to October from 10 am to 6 pm and 10 am to 5 pm for the rest of the year. For further information see the Hillier Gardens Website.

From the parking lot you walk down an avenue of Metasequoia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood) to get to the visitor center.
