Furzey Gardens is a tranquil woodland garden in the New Forest.

Due to staff shortages relating to the requirement to self-isolate, tea room and toilet opening hours may be subject to change at short notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Relax with a wander along our winding and meandering paths, with thatched tea rooms and stunning azaleas and rhododendrons.

Every visit helps us continue our work to provide support and work experience for people with learning disabilities.

We love bees at Furzey Gardens and are really enjoying seeing them busily collecting pollen around the gardens. Bees do such an important job pollinating the fruit and vegetables we eat as well as the countless plants and trees around our garden, but they need our help to protect them. 

So how can you help? 
🌻spread the message that bees do an incredibly important job
🌻don't step on a bee (of course)
🌻support your local beekeepers 
🌻leave an area of lawn unmown, or plant some wildflowers
