Leonardslee Gardens, Horsham

In 2019, Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens opened its doors after a closure of nine years, this magnificent Grade I listed garden was nearly lost forever and has been the subject of the largest garden restoration in England and possibly Europe.

These spectacular and ancient gardens are now open for the public to enjoy once again. Many people in the local area have fond memories of their visits and life around these gardens, and aim to protect this magnificent heritage so that future generations get to enjoy these beautiful green spaces and flora and fauna within.

The gardens also feature an abundance of wildlife. The estate is home to an extraordinary range of wildlife including foxes, rabbits, grey squirrels, badgers, weasels, stoats, shrews, voles, and our now famous wallabies. Green woodpeckers are often spotted, while herons enjoy the shallow lakeside water where carp feed on the surface. Birds regularly sighted include the kingfisher, wild mandarin ducks, nuthatches, and treecreepers. Leonardslee has an extensive deer park which is home to over 100 free-roaming deer; with varieties: Sika and Fallow.

The Sculpture Park & Art Gallery showcases the artist’s contemporary sculpture and life works. This includes several monumental pieces, in harmony with the woodland gardens, positioned by the artist himself to create new vistas across the valley and our seven lakes.

Our day also includes a Cheese and Wine Pairing with the families wine estate in South Africa.
