West Green House Gardens
Nestled in the heart of the Hampshire countryside but barely forty miles from London, West Green House Gardens offers four seasons of beauty, contrast and inspiration. As we approach Autumn, the Garden remains vibrant in its colour and activity, with much to see around our ten acres, as well as special events from September right through to Christmas.
Created by acclaimed garden designer and writer, Marylyn Abbott, West Green is one of England’s finest manor house gardens, marrying traditional style with contemporary design. It is also home to the West Green House Opera Season which took place in late July, this year featuring superb new productions of ‘Un ballo in maschera‘, ‘Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail‘ and the rarely performed ‘Rita’ by Donizetti, all enjoyed by capacity audiences, albeit with slightly less superb weather!. The opera has its own website for full details about the 2018 Season

The West Green House Classic Car Show: Sunday September 24th
Following the success of our first Car Show last year, we welcome more than 80 Classic Cars to this year’s show, displayed for all the family to enjoy in the field adjacent to West Green House.
Registered Classic Cars are welcome from 8.30am and should enter West Green up the main drive, opened just once a year for this occasion. Please follow the signs and stewards directions to ensure you enter by the correct route.
General Admission is from 11am. Members of the public are asked to enter directly into the Car Show Field using the gate on the corner of Thackhams Lane.
Please do not use the main entrance to the Gardens. Access between the Gardens and the Car Show will be on foot only.
The Car Show offers a range of refreshments, with freshly prepared bacon and sausage sandwiches on arrival, a fully licenced bar and the opportunity to pre-book a delicious Afternoon Tea, served in our lovely flower-filled Greenhouse at 2.30pm. The Garden Tea Room will be open from 11am to 4pm serving lunch between 12 noon and 2pm and a delicious range of cakes and biscuits, teas and coffees throughout the day. To prebook Afternoon Tea, simply call us on 01252 844611
Entry to the Car Show costs £10 for adults and £5 for children aged 5 to 16. Entry tickets include unlimited entrance to West Green House Gardens, Tea Room and Shop during Sunday September 24th.
Early indications suggest that even the weather may be on our side, with warmer temperatures forecast and no rain in sight! Come along for a lovely day out for all the family!
Note: West Green House is operated as a private property, and is leased from the National Trust. The House is not open to the public.
Picnics are only permitted outside the main entrance gate, either in the Old Orchard which is adjacent to the Greenhouses or in the car park. Please ensure you take all your litter home with you.
