Historic Gardens in Sussex

Over the centuries, numerous wonderful gardens have been developed in Sussex, and many superb examples remain in excellent condition to this day. However others are not in good condition or have been lost in part or have vanished. Sussex Gardens Trust aims to celebrate and preserve what remains and record what is in danger of being lost so as much as possible can be retained for future generations.

This section provides some illustrated examples of Sussex gardens designed in centuries gone by - click the century buttons to find out about them.
