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

Ghoulish gourds, paranormal pumpkins, creepy climbers – it’s amazing how an autumn garden can quickly transform into something really rather spooky!

Come dressed as your favourite ghost for some spook-tacular photo opportunities and treat yourself to some devilishly delicious delights from our Tea Room.

The Fair is packed full of beautifully chosen delights for the Festive Season, perfect for Christmas Shopping with a stylish twist.
