Leonardslee Gardens, Horsham

Spring is one of the best times for groups to visit Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens.

From March to June this garden comes alive with a riot of colour. Some of the marvels groups can expect to see include Magnolias towering 40 feet high, Camellias in groves, footpaths winding through hills carpeted in bluebells, many hundreds of Rhododendrons and later the show of Azaleas. All these plants produce an amazing symphony of scents.

At every turn, groups will find flowers in so many different colours and shapes – all against the backdrop of new leaves beginning to bud among the trees. It is astonishing to see these colours (the Rhododendrons and Azaleas especially) reflected in the lakes.

Naturally, springtime also comes with new life, in abundance. Leonardslee is home to an extraordinary range of wildlife including foxes, rabbits, grey squirrels, badgers, weasels, stoats, shrews, voles, and our now famous wallabies. The estate is home to over 100 free roaming deer, there are three varieties: Sika, Axis and Fallow.

Green woodpeckers are often spotted, while herons enjoy the shallow lakeside water where large carp feed on the surface. Birds regularly sighted in spring include electric blue kingfishers, yellow Wagtails and even Buzzards, who have taken to nesting in one of the giant Sequoia (Redwoods) from California.
