Riverhill Himalayan Gardens


At Riverhill we have over 12 acres of historic gardens to explore.

Expect the unexpected as you wander from the manicured perfection of the undulating terraces of our famous Walled Garden, with frothy fountains, to the wild Jungle, fragrant Rose Walk, Wood Garden and spectacular Edwardian Rock Garden, carpeted with ferns.

Seasonal highlights include bluebell woods, rhododendrons & azaleas, allium and peony borders, roses & spectacular autumn colour.

For our younger visitors we have a fabulous hedge maze, adventure play area, den building woods, resident Yeti and holiday craft activities.

​​We have very limited wheelchair access due to our hillside location and uneven paths. See our website for more info.

We offer great value season tickets, they pay for themselves in 3 visits and are a great way to enjoy Riverhill throughout the seasons, plus our programme of free, family friendly events during school holidays.

Card payments only across the site, including entry tickets, shop and cafe.
