Wisley in Surrey

There are four Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) gardens, which are open to the public year-round: Wisley in Surrey, Hyde Hall in Essex, Rosemoor in Devon, and Harlow Carr in Yorkshire.

The garden at Wisley is the flagship garden of the RHS and has evolved into a world-class garden since the site was gifted to the society in 1903. Wisley is popular with visitors for its richly planted borders, luscious rose gardens and the state-of-the-art glasshouse.
