Sussex Gardens Open for Charity

Sussex Gardens Open for Charity: National Gardens Scheme

Many Sussex Gardens open for charity each year under the National Garden Scheme. This scheme provides visitors unique access to over 3,700 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

Hopefully it will be possible to visit many of the gardens in West and East Sussex in 2021.

One of the gardens within easy reach of Steyning is in Bignor Park.

You will find 11 acres of gardens to explore, with fantastic views of the South Downs. You’ll see interesting trees, shrubs, and wild flower areas. The walled flower garden has wonderful herbaceous borders. Wander and admire the temple, Greek loggia, Zen pond and unusual sculptures.
