Experience the horticultural gem that is RHS Garden Hyde Hall, with fantastic panoramic views and an estate that is constantly evolving
RHS Garden Hyde Hall is surely one of the finest gardens in the East of England, its location among rolling hills and fantastic panoramic views can often surprise the visitor to Essex. This 145-hectare (360-acre) estate is constantly evolving, as the gardening team strive to retain the original intimacy and charm of this horticultural gem, while at the same time aiming to restore much of the estate to its former rural glory, including its historic hedgerows and woodland.
Biodiversity has been embraced by the team, which is evident in the brown hare population that inhabits the site, along with the butterflies and birds that are abundant at Hyde Hall.
Explore the garden from a different vantage point in this very special video.
Here we share with you some of the highlights of this eclectic garden.
As part of the RHS's major investments programme, some exciting projects are under way at Hyde Hall. Read on for a taste of what we are working on, and what you can look forward to on future visits to our Essex garden.
The Dry Garden is one of the crowning achievements of Hyde Hall, created in 2001, it aims to show visitors how they can work with the environment and use drought-tolerant plants.
Robinson & Woodland Gardens
These two garden areas were first planted by Hyde Hall's original owners, the Robinsons. In 2006 the Robinson Garden was reworked to create a contemporary garden with three distinct boggy areas.
The Hilltop Garden has a number of different areas to explore, including ponds, borders, rose borders and island beds.
