A coach trip has been arranged to visit the beautiful Leonardslee Gardens. After closing its gates 9 years ago it has now been re-opened to the public. It is a beautiful place and has breath-taking views of the English countryside and, when in season, wonderful displays of Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias, Magnolias and many more.
The Estate covers 200 Acres with 7 man-made ponds containing Carp fish, 2 alpine glasshouses, etc. The Estate also inhabits a rare colony of wallabies and deer who wonder semi-freely throughout the Estate.
The Garden is listed as Grade 1 in the English Heritage Register and is set in a steep-sided valley.
