Paradise Lost by Jordi Raga

Sussex-based Borde Hill’s historic garden will be transformed into an outdoor gallery this summer when a sculpture exhibition opens on 12th May.

The exhibition will showcase works by established and up-and-coming artists from across the south of England.

Visitors will discover a mix of figurative and abstract art in bronze, resin, stone, metalwork and ceramic, with a number of pieces commissioned especially to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Borde Hill’s rose garden.

The exhibition will run daily until 2nd October, with group admission included in the standard entry price.

More at Borde Hill

Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views over the Sussex Weald and the Ouse Valley, Borde Hill’s grounds extend to over 200 acres across garden, woodland and parkland.

Groups can explore 17 acres of formal gardens that are designed in a series of outdoor ‘rooms’, each with its own character, colour and scent.

Highlights include the exotic ‘garden of Allah’ and the azalea ring, as well as the traditional rose garden and peaceful Italian garden.

Groups interested in horticulture can enjoy seasonal highlights at all times of the year, like early flowering magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons in spring, and colourful award-winning trees in autumn.

In addition, various events take place throughout the year at Borde Hill, including outdoor music evenings, classic car shows, and RHS talks hosted by gardening experts.
