Borde Hill Garden in Haywards Heath, West Sussex is offering a £10 gift voucher to all coach drivers who bring at least 15 group visitors on an adhoc tour to the garden throughout the 2013 season.

Located 40 miles from Bognor Regis, 33 miles from Eastbourne, 25 miles from Worthing and 17 miles from Brighton, Borde Hill has been described as ‘one of the Country’s truly great gardens’ by Country Life magazine.

It covers over 200 acres of English Heritage Grade II listed park and garden with panoramic views across the Sussex Weald and Ouse Valley.

Explore Borde Hill's distinctive 'garden rooms'

Groups will be able to enjoy spending two to three hours exploring the accessible formal gardens which surround the Elizabethan Mansion. Planted as distinctive ‘garden rooms’, highlights include: early spring flowering rhododendrons in the Garden of Allah; the vibrant Azalea Ring in full bloom during May; the fragrant Rose Garden with over 100 varieties of David Austin roses flowering in the summer months; and the exotic subtropical Round Dell and formal Italian Garden with extensive views across the parkland.

The woodlands beyond are home to many of the 82 ‘Champion Trees’ which make up the largest UK private estate collection and are carpeted with swathes of bluebells and wood anemones during spring.

How to qualify for the coach driver voucher

To qualify for the gift voucher, each driver must bring at least 15 visitors who will pay the normal entry price of £8 per adult, £7.50 per senior citizen and £5 per child. There is no need to pre-book the visit and coach parking is free. The voucher is redeemable in the on-site gift shop which sells an extensive range of gifts, souvenirs and plants.

Borde Hill Garden is open daily between 23rd March and 3rd November 2013 inclusive. Opening times are 10am to 6pm or dusk if earlier, with last admission one hour before closing.
